Abstract

The average polarization of the nucleus12B (bound state) produced in the polarized-muon capture reaction12C(μ,v μ )12B was measured by the muon spin resonance method in a pulsed muon beam. The polarization of12B was maintained completely under a magnetic field of 3 kG in a Grafoil target. After the observed result was corrected for the contribution from the excited states of12B, Pav (ground state) was deduced to be 0.462±0.053. This result yieldsg P /g A =10.1 −2.6 +2.4 , which is almost consistent with the PCAC prediction.
