Abstract

Searches were made with positive muons stopped in liquid helium for free-muon precession, for muonium precession, and for depolarization of the muon spin. The muons behaved as free muons both above and below the point. There was no muonium formation (<2%) and no depolarization of the muon spin (depolarization time >20 sec).
