The muon-catalyzed fusion (μ CF) process in tritium was studied by the μ CF collaboration on the muon beam of the JINR Phasotron. The measurements were carried out with a liquid tritium target at the temperature 22 K and density approximately 1.25 of the liquid hydrogen density ( LHD). Parameters of the μ CF cycle were determined: the ttμ muonic molecule formation rate λttμ=2.84 (0.32) μs-1, the tt fusion reaction rate λf=15.6 (2.0) μs-1, and the probability of muon sticking to helium ωtt=13.9 (1.5) %. The results agree with those obtained earlier by other groups, but better accuracy was achieved due to our unique experimental method.
