We are attempting to observe regenerative muons emitted from the surface of a solid hydrogen thin film by muon-catalyzed fusion by irradiating the film with muons that have the same charge as electrons and 207 times the mass of electrons. The main background factors in detecting regenerative muons are scattered muons from the accelerator, which are slowed down to the same level as regenerative muons by the target, and bremsstrahlung generated by the components of the device. The results show that there is little scattering within the solid hydrogen, and that the dominant slowing down process is at the Al foil upstream of the solid hydrogen target. The energy distribution of Bremsstrahlung at the X-ray detection position will be reported.
