Inserting a control character into a string

I have 2 strings and I want to put the character "\" between them.

So, I have
string a = "MMM";
string b = "I01";
string c = a+"\"+b;

so c looks like "MMM\I01".

However, no matter how I structure the addition, the single \ is always replaced with a \\.

Any thoughts how to achieve this?
