Muonic atoms have an increased sensitivity on finite size effects of the nucleus due to the ~200-fold mass of the muon compared to the electron. The CREMA collaboration has measured the Lamb shift in muonic hydrogen and muonic deuterium atoms, as well as in muonic helium-4 and helium-3 ions. These measurements allow to determine charge radii and other nuclear properties with improved...

The nuclear charge radius can be determined from spectroscopic measurements in muonic atoms, provided the atomic structure is well known and the influence of nuclear excitation on atomic levels is properly accounted for. The latter is problematic due to the difficulty in solving quantum chromodynamics in low energy scale. We perform calculations in perturbative approach by the...
36. FAMU experiment: characterization of target and detectors and measurements of muonic transfer rate from hydrogen to heavier gases
Dr Emiliano Mocchiutti (INFN Trieste)
The precise measurement of the hyperfine splitting of the muonic-hydrogen atom ground state requires advanced technology both in the construction of a gas target and of the detectors. In June 2014, the FAMU pressurized gas target was exposed to the low energy muon beam at the RIKEN RAL muon facility. The objectives of the test were to characterize both the target and the X-ray...
