Conference paper


The analysis of muonic X-ray spectra in heavy deformed nuclei has been carried out in the past by diagonalizing the electric quadrupole interaction HQ between the muonic spin doublets (2P3/2,2P1/2), (3d5/2,3d3/2) and the ground state rotational band of the nucleus. To take into account the muonic and nuclear states not included in the diagonalization, we introduce the effective quadrupole interaction Heff by virtual excitations into those states, as shown in the following diagram.
