MuSun – muon capture

The Experiment:

The MuSun experiment was started in 2008. Spokespersons are: P. Kammel (USA), C. Petitjean (Switzerland), and A. Vasilyev (Russia). The idea of the experiment is to measure the rate Λd for muon capture on the deuteron to better than 1.5% precision.

Our work:

Cryogenic Time Projection Chamber (TPC) was designed and produced in our laboratory. It is the main detector of muon capture at deuteron experiment (MuSun).
