† Participant of the Study Group and non-member of the Muon Collider and Neutrino Factory Collaboration. The concept of using a muon storage ring to provide a well characterized beam of muon and electron neutrinos (a Neutrino Factory) has been under study for a number of years now at various laboratories throughout the world. The physics program of a… (More)
We describe the status of the effort to realize a first neutrino factory and the progress made in understanding the problems associated with the collection and cooling of muons towards that end. We summarize the physics that can be done with neutrino factories as well as with intense cold beams of muons. The physics potential of muon colliders is reviewed,… (More)
The status of the research on muon colliders is discussed and plans are outlined for future theoretical and experimental studies. Besides work on the parameters of a 3– 4 and 0.5 TeV center-of-mass (COM) energy collider, many studies are now concentrating on a machine near 0.1 TeV (COM) that could be a factory for the s-channel production of Higgs… (More)

Muon Colliders have unique technical and physics advantages and disadvantages when compared with both hadron and electron machines. They should thus be regarded as complementary. Parameters are given of 4 TeV and 0.5 TeV high luminosity µ + µ − colliders, and of a 0.5 TeV lower luminosity demonstration machine. We discuss the various systems in such muon… (More)
The diiculty encountered in designing an interaction region (IR) for a 2-TeV Muon Collider lies in the extreme constraints placed on beam parameters at the point of collision. This paper examines a relaxation of the interaction-point criterion insofar as it impacts luminosity, the design, and stability of the interaction region.
In the framework of the project to design and test a collimation system prototype using bent channeling crystal for cleaning of the RHIC heavy ion beam halo, we have studied the optimal length and bending angle of a silicon (110) single crystal proposed to be a primary element situated upstream of the traditional heavy amorphous collimator. Besides the… (More)
