It is herein demonstrated by implementing the Jackson–Rafelski ratio that a full muon desticking from the hydrogenic ion Heμ+ can occur during its slowing down in sufficiently dense plasmas, including in warm dense matter (WDM) and inertially confined fusion (ICF) ones.

This is not a priori the case for Tokamak plasmas with Ndt ∼ 1014/cc, thus requesting a specific attention with the electron Larmor radius significantly smaller than Debye length.
