Abstract

A lot of intriguing physics is found in itinerant systems and while many materials contain both local and itinerant magnetic moments, only three systems are composed of non-magnetic constituents. Since magnetic moments in these systems are very small, they can only be resolved by muSR. We propose to examine TiBe2 an itinerant magnet, whose ground state remains unclear.
