The charge state of muonium has been investigated in p-type doped, nominally undoped (low n-type) and heavily n-type doped InAs. The donor Mu(+) state is shown to be the dominant defect in all cases. Consequently, muonium does not simply counteract the prevailing conductivity in this material. This is consistent with the charge neutrality level lying above the conduction band minimum in InAs.
