Abstract
The ionization with temperature of weakly bound muonium atoms in undoped Cd S has been studied using the technique of muon spin relaxation in a transve rse magnetic field of 10 mT. For this atom the Coulomb binding energy betwe en the muon and the electron is sufficiently small that the Landau diamagne tic term determines the magnetic behavior of the system: due to the diamagn etic interaction the muon precession in a transverse magnetic field exhibit s a frequency shift of approximately 0.5% around the ionization temperature .
