Nonresonant molecular formation


Since Faifman's predictions of nonresonant molecular formation rates [51] depend only weakly on the energies, a constant rate from Ref. [51] was used: s-1 for $p\mu d$ and s-1 for $p\mu t$ formation. For $p\mu p$ formation, on the other hand, the measured rate by our group s-1 [83] was used in the simulations.
