The hyperfine dependence of exclusive muon capture in nuclei, μ-[Z, A]→(vμ[Z-1, A]*, is sensitive to the coupling constants of the proton's weak interaction, and can be measured through the capture time dependence induced by hyperfine transitions between the hyperfine states of the muonic atom. Here we report measurements of the hyperfine transition rates in μ-F, Na, and Cl, and a preliminary measurement of the capture hyperfine dependence on 23Na.
