This quantity describes purposes of muons in technological know-how and engineering. learn utilizing muons is dependent upon their easy houses and their microscopic interactions with surrounding debris. Examples of muon learn comprise muon catalysis for nuclear fusion; the applying of muon spin probes to check microscopic magnetic homes of fabrics; electron labeling to aid within the realizing of electron move in proteins; and non-destructive point research of the human physique. Cosmic ray muons is also used to review the internal constitution of volcanoes.

2002). Given the existence of such a high-intensity µ+/µ− beam generated from a super-super channel, one can expect high-quality slow µ+/µ− beam generation by combining the technical features of the super-super channel with those of the ultraslow muon generation method. For µ+ , by stopping intense incident µ+ in hot tungsten sheets, a slow µ+ beam of quite high intensity and good quality can be generated. However, there is no similar good method for slow µ− generation, and so alternative methods for high-quality µ− beam production need to be explored.
