Entangled spin states are created by implanting muons into single-crystal LiY 0.95 Ho 0.05 F 4 to form a cluster of correlated, dipole-coupled local magnetic moments. The resulting states have well-defined energy levels allowing experimental manipulation of the state populations by electromagnetic excitation. Experimental control of the evolution of the muon spin polarization is demonstrated through application of continuous, radio-frequency electromagnetic excitation fields. A semiclassical model of quantum, dipole-coupled spins interacting with a classical, oscillating magnetic field accounts for the muon spin evolution. On application of the excitation field, this model shows how changes in the state populations lead to the experimentally observed effects, thus enabling a spectroscopic probe of entangled spin states with muons.
