RadialMoment Analysis for Muonic XRays
Abstract
The effect of the size and radial shape of a spherical nuclei on muonicatom energies is studied. Each binding energy and each transition energy in the muonic atom determines a particular generalized radial moment of the nuclear charge distribution, or an equivalent radius. The form of the generalized radial moment, however, varies, the most widely accepted one being the twoparameter Barrett form. A singleparameter form approximating the transition potential in muonic atoms, and thereby, a new form for the generalized radial moment are presented. The singleparameter form yields comparable results with that obtained by the twoparameter Barrett form in radialmoment analysis. The single parameter is isotopically independent and is uniquely defined by the particular transition of a given element.
