Since 1986, the experimental studies on muon catalyzed fusion (μCF) have been extensively in progress utilizing sharply pulsed negative muon available at the Meson Science Laboratory of the University of Tokyo (UT‐MSL) located at KEK in Japan. Two major results have already been achieved: a) the first observation of radiative transition photons in the boundless decay from the (d4He μ) molecule during the process of muon transfer reaction from (d μ) to He impurity in liquid D2; b) X‐ray measurement on the alpha sticking probability (ωs) in the μCF for high CT and liquid D2/T2, placing an upper limit on the ωs. New directions of experiments are now in preparation based upon these two achievements; a) search for the intermolecular transition in (dHeμ) and possible fusion process in (d 3He μ) molecules and b) precise X‐ray experiments on the ωs in (dt μ) μCF and its CT dependence.
