    • Abstract

       

      Intensity ratios ofμ-mesonic x-rays in some heavy elements are discussed. Intensity ratios of the$$K_{\alpha _1 } /K_{\alpha _2 } $$ and$$L_{\alpha _1 } /L_{\beta _2 } $$ lines have been calculated for206Pb,209Bi and238U with relativistic wavefunctions and retardation effect. Though for a refined calculation, it is necessary to take into consideration several features that are peculiar to mesonic atoms, the present calculations have shown that the observed intensity ratios of mesonic x-rays are not anomalous.
