The magnetic properties of Ce 0.7La 0.3B 6 single crystal have been studied by muon spin relaxation (μSR). The absence of a clear muon spin precession under zero external field in phase IV indicates that no commensurate long-range magnetic order is present in this phase. Moreover, the time spectra under a longitudinal field strongly suggests that there are two sources of local fields exerting coherently on muons in phase IV. It was inferred from the muon Knight shift under a transverse field that the direction of the effective internal magnetic field probed by muon exhibits a marked change between phase III and IV.
