Abstract

In November 1994, the construction of a new superconducting muon channel of the RIKEN-RAL muon facility at ISIS of Rutherford Appleton Laboratory was completed. Subsequently, important features, such as the highest instantaneous intensity with a single-pulse structure and a high purity have been confirmed. Along with the installation of advanced µCF experimental equipment, including a high-purity D-T mixture target system with an in situ3He removal capability and a 4 T confinement magnet, an advanced µCF experiment, e.g. a precise X-ray measurement on µ-α sticking in dtµ-µCF will be realized. An account of the commissioning experiments, a plan for the earliest phase of the µCF experiment and possible future directions are reported.
