Abstract Measurements of the absolute neutron yield and the time dependence of the appearance of neutrons resulting from muon-catalyzed fusion have been carried out in high-density deuterium-tritium mixtures. The temperature dependence of the resonant dt..mu..-molecular formation process has been determined in the range 100 to 540 K. Mesomolecular formation is found to be resonant for DT as well as D/sub 2/ target molecules. The sticking probability and other fundamental parameters have been measured for the first time.
