Examples

  • A problem with this kind of telescopes is that the flux of muons from the cosmic ray interactions in the sky above the telescopes is by far larger than the expected amount of muons from neutrino interactions.

    High Energy Neutrinos from Cosmos

  • As neutrino interactions are very rare, the background from other processes was disturbing, particularly the background caused by the penetrating muons from the cosmic radiation.

    The Nobel Prize in Physics 1988

  • The Fermi group conducted particle accelerator experiments that apparently show that pairs of insanely tiny particles called muons are produced ever-so-slightly more often than pairs of anti-muons.

  • These cosmic rays hit the air and create fast particles called muons, which would rain down over the Earth.

  • What they observed was a strikingly close relationship between the cosmic-rays and stratospheric temperature - this they could understand: the cosmic-rays, known as muons are produced following the decay of other cosmic rays, known as mesons.

  • The cosmic rays that are known as muons are produced following the decay of other cosmic rays, known as mesons.

  • Charged particles called muons are created in the aftermath of cosmic ray collisions in the Earth's upper atmosphere.

    undefined

  • During an experiment in Fermilab's Tevatron particle accelerator, a group of elementary particles called muons showed up in a strange place.
