A Measurement of the Muon Capture Rate in Liquid Deuterium by the Lifetime Technique

Conference paper

Abstract

Since neutron β-decay and muon capture on the proton define the nucleon weak form factors, muon capture on the deuteron allows to study the two-nucleon system with the weak interaction probe, investigating problems like the deuteron wave function, meson exchange currents and final state interactions.
