Abstract

When in the seventies “meson factories” like LAMPF, SIN, TRIUMF and KEK started operations, this gave rise to a considerable impact on the field of muon catalyzed fusion (µCF). This fertilizing effect came along with the strong impact these facilities made on the field of exotic atoms as a whole, on muon physics [1] and, especially, muonic atoms and molecules in hydrogen. A good deal of fundamental questions had been attacked before (for a review, see ref. [2]). A number of problems had been solved, a number of serious problems was left open or was not answered with the accuracy desired. They could now be attacked with a reasonable chance for success due to the strongly improved beam quality. This was partly due to the strongly enhanced intensity of extracted beams, but also due to new ideas, e.g. the superconducting muon channel at the Swiss Institute for Nuclear Research (SIN)[3].
