 UC  Berkeley - Weak Interactions Group

The goal of the MuCAP Experiment (Muon Capture on the Proton) is the precise measurement (1%) of the muon capture rate on proton in the 1s-singlet state which in turn allows the determination of the induced pseudoscalar formfactor gp of the semileptonic weak interaction.
The experiment is performed by an international collaboration at the Paul Scherrer Institut (Switzerland). Also visit the collaboration homepage of the MuCap experiment at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign .
