We study production and equilibration of pions and muons in relativistic electron-positron-photon plasma at a temperature of T mμ, mπ. We argue that the observation of pions and muons can be a diagnostic tool in the study of the initial properties of such a plasma formed by means of strong laser fields. Conversely, properties of muons and pions in a thermal environment become accessible to precise experimental study.
