TL;DR Summary
Is the cross-section for muonic molecular hydrogen ions dissociation the same as that for ordinary
hydrogen ions?
Is the dissociation energy of a muonic molecular hydrogen ion the same as an ordinary molecular hydrogen ion? Would the cross-section for dissociation be the same as an ordinary molecular hydrogen ion? I am trying to determine the fusion rate for muon-catalyzed fusion in warm dense plasma, and I need to know the dissociation rate of a muonic hydrogen molecule due to electron collisions.

As the masses are different, I really don't see how the energy could be the same.
