On the formation of muonic hydrogen at low pressure

Article

Summary

A discussion of the main parameters of muonic-hydrogen formation in low-pressure targets (10−2 Torr <P<10 Torr) is presented. Particularly we discuss, as a function of the pressure, the function of captured muons, the velocity distribution of the μp atoms and the time evolution of the 2S population.

Об обраэовании мю-водорода при ниэком давлении

Реэюме

Обсуждаются основные параметры обраэования мю-водорода в мищенях при ниэких давлениях (10−2 Top <P<10 Top). В частности, мы исследуем долю эахваченных мюонов, распределение скоростей μp атомов и временную зволюцию 2S эаселенности в эависимости от давления.

Riassunto

Questo lavoro si articola sulla discussione dei parametri principali che regolano la formazione di idrogeno muonico a basse pressioni (10−2 Torr <P<10 Torr). In particolare, si trattano la frazione di muoni catturati, in funzione della pressione, la distribuzione in velocità e l’evoluzione temporale della popolazione dello stato 2S degli atomi μp formati.
