Measurements of Negative Muon Lifetimes in Light Isotopes

One of 5,256 reports in the series: Atomic Energy Commission Reports available on this site.

Description

"Muon capture rates have been measured in a large number of the heavier elements in recent years. The amount of data available on the light elements, however, is scant. It would seem that lifetime measurements of muons in light elements would be of particular interest with regard to understanding the nuclear structure and determining the strength of the weak interaction. Furthermore, only one previous measurement of the muon capture "'isotope effect" has been done, that being for chlorine isotopes. In view of these considerations, the series of muon capture experiments reported in this paper was undertaken."
