Abstract

Zero- and longitudinal-field muon-spin relaxation μ+SR measurements have been performed on La_(2-x)Sr_xCuO_4 alloys in both single-crystal and sintered powder forms above and below their magnetic transition temperatures, T_f. The μ+ precession frequency v depends only weakly on x and T_f, an observation which together with resistivity data implies classical freezing of magnetic moments in the regime where the carriers are localized. For x=0.05, critical dynamics are observed near T_f. The μ^+SR technique is shown to be very sensitive to ferromagnetically aligned pairs of Cu^(2+) moments; the population of such pairs increases greatly with x.
