Abstract

We have developed a muon detector system consisting of plastic scintillators to measure the secondary cosmic-ray muon energy spectrum in the low energy region from 50 to 130 MeV. The experiment with the detector system was conducted at Chikushi Campus of Kyushu University in Japan. The measured spectrum is in good agreement with the one measured by Allkofer in 1971 in the shape and magnitude, while the prediction by EXPACS underestimates both our measured data and the Allkofer's data.
