Survey of experimental results in muoncatalyzed fusion
Abstract
Over the past decade of research muoncatalyzed fusion yields have significantly exceeded expectations. A simple equation for fusion yield 1/Y = λ_{o}/λ_{c} + W, where Y is the fusion yield, λ_{o} is the muon decay rate, λ_{c} is the muoncatalysis cycling rate, and W is the probability of muon loss per catalysis cycle, will guide this discussion. It indicates that to increase fusion yield the catalysis rate needs to be maximized and the muon losses must be at a minimum. We will review what has been learned about these parameters, then examine the current fusion yields visavis energy applications for muon catalyzed fusion. (AIP)
