Triplet State Lifetimes and Muon Capture in Gaseous Hydrogen

Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 23)

Abstract

It is now a long time since experiments exploiting the physical phenomena which follow the slowing down of negative muon beams in matter offer manifold opportunities of obtaining independent and siggnificant informations on different fundamental physical fields1; for instance molecular and atomic physics, quantum electrodynamics and nuclear physics. Nevertheless, despite its fundamental importance, it is today still absent a measurement of the muon capture rate in hydrogen from the triplet spin state of mu-atomic systems.
