How does a $\mu_R^-/\mu_L^+$ decay?

A physical muon is a mass eigenstate. This is a superposition of the left and right chirality components. Because of this, the physical muon can always interact via the weak currents through its left-...

How to be sure that when a muon passes a detector it is actually a muon?

You can tell by how its path curves in a magnetic field. That curvature is very explicitly governed by its charge-to-mass ratio, which for every known fundamental particle is pretty much unique. A ...
