It is theoretically shown that in rare gases at P < /100 atm the external electric fields of the order of 100 V/cm could significantly change the value of electron density in the region of μ- or μ+ stopping point and affect the muonic atoms formation in plasma‐chemical reactions. The kinetic model of processes which might explain the results of μSR‐experiments for μ- in Ne and Ar both with and without external electric field is proposed.
