Transverse-field μSR spectroscopy was used to study the behaviour of positive muons implanted in polycrystalline chemical-vapour-deposited (CVD) diamond. Measurements were made at sample temperatures of 10 K, 100 K, and 300 K at a magnetic field of 7.5 mT to study the behaviour of the "normal" (isotropic) muonium state (MuT) and the diamagnetic states (μd), and at 10 K and 300 K at the so-called "magic field" of 407.25 mT to study the anomalous (bond-centred) muonium state (MuBC) and μd. The absolute fractions of the muonium states in the CVD diamond are observed to be close to those in high-quality natural type-IIa single crystal diamond.
