Charge Exchange Processes

Part of the Springer Proceedings in Physics book series (SPPHY, volume 59)


Negative muon (pion) transfer from mesic hydrogen to the nucleus of heavier hydrogen isotopes or of elements with Z>1 is investigated. Direct charge exchange as well as the molecular mechanism are considered, the latter going via a quasistationary intermediate molecular state. Both processes are analyzed for the ground state and excited states of the mesic atom.
