The energy spectra of protons, deuterons and tritons produced by the nuclear muon capture reaction in natSi were measured at the M1 beam line of Muon Science Innovative Channel (MuSIC) in Research Center for Nuclear Physics (RCNP) using a counter telescope consisting of a Si detector and a CsI(Tl) scintillation detector. The measured energy spectra were consistent with the previous ones. The experimental energy spectra were compared with theoretical model calculations using the Particle and Heavy Ion Transport code System (PHITS). In PHITS, both the dynamical and statistical processes in the nuclear muon capture reaction are described by the Quantum Molecular Dynamics (QMD) or the modified QMD and the Generalized Evaporation Model (GEM), respectively. The PHITS simulation reproduced generally well the measured proton spectrum at emission energies below 20 MeV, while underestimation was seen at emission energies above 20 MeV. The PHITS simulation underestimates remarkably the measured energy spectra of light complex particles (deuterons, tritons, and alpha particles) in the high energy region.
