The CREMA collaboration is pursuing a measurement of the ground-state hyperfine splitting (HFS) in muonic hydrogen (\muμp) with 1 ppm accuracy by means of pulsed laser spectroscopy to determine the two-photon-exchange contribution with 2\times10^{-4}2×10−4 relative accuracy. In the proposed experiment, the \muμp atom undergoes a laser excitation from the singlet hyperfine state to the triplet hyperfine state, {then} is quenched back to the singlet state by an inelastic collision with a H_22…

Theoretical discrepancies in the nucleon spin structure and the hyperfine splitting of muonic hydrogen

Two groups, ours (Mainz) and Bochum, have recently been re-evaluating the spin polarizabilities and spin structure functions at low Q, using the baryon chiral perturbation theory (BχPT), the

Quantum interference effects in laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen, deuterium and helium-3

Quantum interference between energetically close states is theoretically investigated, with the state structure being observed via laser spectroscopy. In this work, we focus on hyperfine states of

Toward the measurement of the hyperfine structure of muonic hydrogen in the FAMU experiment. Multi-pass cavity optimization for experiments with pulsed sources

We consider a simplified model of the optical multi-pass cavity that is being currently developed by the FAMU collaboration for the measurement of the hyperfine splitting in the ground state of

Toward the measurement of the hyperfine splitting in the ground state of muonic hydrogen

The recent Lamb shift experiment at PSI and the controversy about proton size revived the interest in measuring the hyperfine splitting in muonic hydrogen and extracting the proton Zemach radius. The

Measurement of the proton Zemach radius from the hyperfine splitting in muonic hydrogen atom

Muonic hydrogen is a bound state of a proton and a negative muon. Its Bohr radius is 200 times smaller than that of an electronic hydrogen atom. Therefore, a spectroscopy of the muonic hydrogen is

Rabi-oscillation spectroscopy of the hyperfine structure of muonium atoms

A new spectroscopic analysis method is developed and described. Instead of determining the transition energy from the center frequency of the resonance curve, in this method, it is directly obtained
