We have used muon-spin rotation (μSR) to study the metamagnetic transition in View the MathML source where Cp*=C5Me5 and TCNQ is 7,7,8,8-tetracyano-p-quinodimethane. This electron-transfer salt contains parallel chains of alternating View the MathML source cations and [TCNQ]- anions. Our zero-field μSR data show the 2.5 K transition and show that a static, but disordered, internal field distribution develops below this. High-transverse-field μSR has also been used to study the metamagnetic transition and the data illustrate how the internal field distribution changes through this transition.
