Probing Matter with Positive Muons

Part of the Advanced Texts in Physics book series (ADTP)


A very efficient technique for probing the structure of crystals consists in forming, inside the material, pseudo hydrogenic atoms made of an electron and a positive muon, and called muonium. This chapter is devoted to the study of the dynamics of muonium, both in vacuum and in a silicon crystal.
