Abstract

The formation mechanism of exotic atoms is not yet well known. The muonic x-ray intensity patterns are, however, found to be sensitive to solid state structures, showing that the muon capture mechanism is influenced by the spatial distribution of bonding electrons. In compounds, pion and muon capture ratios are both influenced by the bond structure. Hydrogen compounds are cases of particular interest.
