(2012-09-18)The MuCap experiment measures the mu^- disappearance rate, l_-, in a gaseous hydrogen time projection chamber (TPC) and compares it to the free mu^+ decay rate, l_+, to obtain the mu p singlet capture rate L_S. The motivation ...
(2011-08-25)The MuCap experiment is designed to measure the disappearance rate of negative muons in an ultra-pure protium gas to a precision of 15 ppm using a time projection chamber (TPC). Combined with precise knowledge of the rate ...
