Abstract

We measured the yields of K-series X-rays from (αμ)+ ion formed by muon to alpha sticking as well as the yields and the disappearance rates of fusion neutrons in 3He-free solid and liquid D-T mixtures. The effective sticking probability ωs obtained by neutron measurement is much smaller than any theoretical values so far published, while the discrepancy in αμ X-ray yield seems less significant.
