Abstract

Muon catalyzed dt fusion in dense D/T and H/D/T gas mixtures of hydrogen isotopes is studied by the MCF collaboration at JINR. The measurements were carried out with a high pressure target at the JINR phasotron in the temperature range 300-800 K at mixture densities \( \simeq 0.4{\text{ and }} \simeq {\text{0}}{\text{.8 LHD}}\). Tentative experimental results obtained by several analysis methods are presented.
