Abstract : Results of a precision re-evaluation of the mumesonic x-ray transition energies for Tl, Pb, Bi, Ti, Fe, Cu, and Zn are presented. The 2p-1s and 3d-2p transition regions were studied for Tl, Pb, and Bi, and the 2p fine structure splitting was determined with good precision from both sets of measurements. The Tl, Pb, and Bi transition energies were determined to about 0.2%, while the 2p state fine structure splitting was determined to within 2 to 3%. The results are in good agreement with the theoretically predicted values of Ford and Wills, based on the charge distributions implied from the high energy electron scattering experiments. (Author)
