Experimental and theoretical activities are underway at CERN [1] with the aim of examining the feasibility of a very-high-flux neutrino source (≈10 21 neutrinos/year). In the present scheme, a high-power proton beam (some 4 MW) bombards a target where pions are produced. The pions are collected and decay to muons under controlled optical condition. The(More)
In this note a muon front-end without cooling is presented. The muons are captured, rotated and accelerated to the energy needed for injection into the first muon recirculator. The cavity parameters are consistent with those used for the CERN reference scenario [1]. The number of muons obtained per year is roughly one order of magnitude less than the one(More)

The International Design Study for the Neutrino Factory (the IDS-NF) collaboration has been established by the Neutrino Factory community to deliver a Reference Design Report (RDR) for the facility by 2012/13. This, the first progress report, summarises the status of the study in early 2010. The baseline design for the facility will provide 10 21 muon(More)
A possible layout for a cooling experiment is being studied to demonstrate the feasibility of the CERN reference scenario for a muon cooling channel of a future neutrino factory. Tracking of muons in 3D magnetic and electric fields was performed with the aim of validating the setup , i.e. the possibility of extrapolating to the final reference channel.(More)
This study explores the interactions underlying the IR spectra of the ionic liquid [NC4111][NTf2] and its deuterated isotopomer [d9-NC4111][NTf2] by first isolating the spectra of charged ionic building blocks using mass-selective CIVP spectroscopy and then following the evolution of these bands upon sequential assembly of the ionic constituents. The(More)
We present simulation work performed at CERN and collaborating institutes concerning the muon front-end of a neutrino factory and a possible muon cooling experiment. The front-end in the CERN scheme of a neutrino factory has been revised, eliminating the 44 MHz cavities and starting directly with 88 MHz. Two options for a muon cooling experiment have been(More)
This note presents a beam dynamics analysis of a possible muon cooling experiment based on 88 MHz cavities. The proposed setup is a subsection of the cooling channel in the CERN reference scheme for a neutrino factory. We present two different setups using 8 and 4 cavities. For each of these setups we have carried out a beam dynamics study based on(More)
