Abstract

A muonic hydrogen atom can, in collisions, transfer its muon to any other element. By measuring the time distribution of muonic x-rays resulting from muons transferred to the element Z from the εp ground state, one determines the lifetime of µp1s atoms in H2 + Z gas mixtures. Surprising effects are observed which still wait for explanation.
