Abstract

Precise measurements of the absolute yields and the disappearance rates were carried out for both the X-rays from the (αμ)+ ion formed by muon to alpha sticking after the muon catalyzed fusion and for the fusion neutrons from 3He-free liquid and solid D/T mixtures. While the αμ) X-ray yield does not contradict the values predicted by the atomic-process theories, the effective sticking probability (ωs) obtained by neutron measurement is much smaller than that from any of the calculations published so far, suggesting, e.g., enhanced reactivation.
