Abstract Muons are short-lived species with an elementary positive or negative charge and a mass 207 times that of the electron. These recommendations concern positive muons, given the short lifetime of negative muons. A positive muon mimics a light hydrogen nucleus, and names are given in analogy to existing names for hydrogen-containing compounds. A particle consisting of a positive muon and an electron (µ+ e -) is named "muonium" and has the symbol Mu. Examples: "muonium chloride," MuCl, is…

The positive muon and μSR spectroscopy: powerful tools for investigating the structure and dynamics of free radicals and spin probes in complex systems
The positive muon (μ+) can be incorporated into free radicals where it acts as a probe of the structure and dynamics. The muoniated radicals are characterized by a series of magnetic resonance
Isotopes and Analogs of Hydrogen – from Fundamental Investigations to Practical Applications
The story of the part played by hydrogen and its stable isotope deuterium in the primordial synthesis of the elements is retells, then it is described how the spectrum of atomic hydrogen led to insights into the laws governing matter at the most fundamental level.
Towards next generation fundamental precision measurements with muons
Several previous fundamental precision measurements with muons (μ), such as that of the muonium (Mu) 1S-2S transition frequency and ground-state hyperfine splitting, were limited by the statistics
Dynamics of Mu, H, D, and T Absorption into Pd(111): Isotope Effects
We perform quantum dynamical calculations on the absorption of hydrogen isotopes (viz., Mu, H, D, and T) into Pd(111) subsurface through the threefold fcc hollow site, under the influence of the co...
Unified Field Theory and Topology of Nuclei
This paper proposes that a nucleus has a lattice configuration. A nucleus can not be seen visually. The configuration of a nucleus is studied in theoretical models, such as lattice, NCFC, and water
Thermodynamic parameters of the sorption of light hydrocarbons on monolithic capillary columns in gas chromatography
A silica monolithic capillary column was used to measure the differential enthalpy and entropy of sorption of light hydrocarbons eluted with four different carrier gases. It was demonstrated that a
Some Philosophical Issues
Research in superheavy elements (SHEs) is not only a highly specialized branch of modern science its history also casts light on problems of a more general nature. One of these problems, a classical
