Abstract

The first direct measurement ofqls and its dependence on target density and deuterium concentration was performed in H/D (protium/deuterium) mixtures. Charge coupled devices (CCDs) were employed to detect the muonic hydrogen X rays. The presented preliminary results were obtained by determining the relative Kα-yields of both isotopes.
