Si detector data

Detection of the alpha particles provided the signature of $d\mu t$molecule formation. From the data, information on two somewhat independent aspects can be extracted, namely, time spectra and absolute yields. As is the case in many experiments, the absolute measurement of the data was more difficult compared to the time spectrum measurement. In this section, the procedure for the analysis of the $\alpha$ particle data from Run Series 2 is presented.
