Title: {gamma} rays from muon capture in I, Au, and Bi

Abstract

A significant improvement has been made in the identification of {gamma} rays from muon capture in I, Au, and Bi, all monisotopic elements. The ({mu}{sup -},{nu}n) reaction was clearly observed in all nuclei, but the levels excited do not correlate well with the spectroscopic factors from the (d,{sup 3}He) reaction. Some ({mu}{sup -},{nu}2n), ({mu}{sup -},{nu}3n), ({mu}{sup -},{nu}4n), ({mu}{sup -},{nu}5n) and other reactions have been observed at a lower yield. The muonic x-ray cascades have also been studied in detail.
