3 The $\mu$SR Technique

This chapter describes how one can measure the field distribution associated with the vortex lattice in the bulk of a superconductor using muon spin rotation ($\mu$SR) spectroscopy. A comparison is made with the nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technique which can also be used to measure the field distribution.
