# Capture rate and neutron helicity asymmetry for ordinary muon capture on hydrogen

@article{Ando2000CaptureRA, title={Capture rate and neutron helicity asymmetry for ordinary muon capture on hydrogen}, author={Shung-ichi Ando and Fred Myhrer and Kuniharu Kubodera}, journal={Physical Review C}, year={2000}, volume={63}, pages={015203} }

Applying heavy-baryon chiral perturbation theory to ordinary muon capture (OMC) on a proton, we calculate the capture rate and neutron helicity asymmetry up to nextto-next-to-leading order. For the singlet hyperfine state, we obtain the capture rate 0 = 695 sec −1 while, for the triplet hyperfine state, we obtain the capture rate 1 = 11.9 sec −1 and the neutron asymmetry α1 = 0.93. If the existing formalism is used to relate these atomic capture rates to liq, the OMC rate in liquid hydrogen…
