Abstract

We report a muon spin relaxation study of the organic spin-Peierls system MEM(TCNQ)(2) over the temperature range 39 mK to 200 K. Our results show a crossover from Gaussian to exponential relaxation below the spin-Peierls transition temperature. We attribute this change to the effect of a dilute set of static electronic defect spins resulting from the majority of spins freezing into a non-magnetic spin singlet state.
