Abstract

A method is described for the study of reactions of energetic muonic deuterium and tritium, atoms. It is based on the observation of emission into vacuum of muonic deuterium from thin layers of solid hydrogen. A simple model for emission is accompanied by some rate calculations. Finally, an experiment is proposed to take advantage of the process to study muonic hydrogen reactions.
