Muonium

  • Vernon W. Hughes
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 31)

Abstract

Muonium (M≡μ+e-) was discovered in 1960 through observation of its characteristic Larmor precession in a magnetic field. Since then research on the fundamental properties of M has been actively pursued2,3, as has also the study of muonium collisions in gases, muonium chemistry and muonium in solids.4
