Abstract Positive muons injected into solid C60, K4C60, and K6C60 form vacuumlike muonium (μ+e-) with a (6–12)% probability. Observation of coherent spin precession of muonium establishes that all three materials are nonmagnetic and nonconducting at low temperatures. From the temperature dependence of the signals we estimate the electronic band gaps in K4C60 and K6C60 to be considerably smaller than in C60. The similarity of the muonium centers supports a model in which a muonium atom is caged inside the C60 molecule in pure C60 or the C60x molecular ion in KxC60.
