Formation of novel quantum states driven by magnetic frustration are of strong current interest. For metallic Kondo lattices tuned to a quantum critical point (QCP), strong frustration is predicted to cause a severe breakdown of Fermi liquid behavior and a possible metallic spin liquid state. CePdAl is a prototype frustrated Kondo lattice with incommensurate long-range magnetic order (LRO) at about 2.7 K involving only 2/3-rd of the 4f moments. The LRO can be suppressed by hydrostatic pressure exceeding 1 GPa  and an extended non-Fermi liquid ground state has been observed up to a pressure of about 1.7 GPa . We have employed Muon Spin Relaxation / Rotation (µSR) at milli-Kelvin temperatures and pressures up to 1.62 GPa as a local technique to determine the nature of the magnetic moments across the quantum critical point in CePdAl.
