To measure muon catalyzed fusion (MC) parameters in liquid tritium with the accuracy better than 10% in the reaction tt4He + n +n+ , a cryogenic tritium target (CTT) of a 8.1 cm3 volume was created. The CTT is a radiation-safe complex containing chemically bound tritium in the form of uranium tritide in a special source.

In 2003, using the CTT, two runs of measurements with liquid tritium MC parameters were made on the synchrocyclotron muon channel in the Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems, Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (DLNP JINR).
