P1_8 Muonic Atoms

Ashley Back, Ben Hall, Gregory Brown, Stuart Turner


Muonic atoms are atoms where electrons are replaced with negatively charged muons. This paper analyses the implications of muonic hydrogenic atoms compared to standard hydrogenic atoms. It was found that energy levels in muonic hydrogen are increased by a factor of 186, whilst the Bohr radius is 186 times smaller. The spectra associated with Hydrogen are also significantly altered.
