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)
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)

In early 2007 the special research program HiMAT – History of Mining Activities in Tyrol – was established at the University of Innsbruck. It is an interdisciplinary research project dedicated to the history of mining in Tyrol and adjacent areas, sponsored by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). At present, the Surveying and Geoinformation Unit of University of(More)
As one method of surveying seldom meets all needs for recording complex shapes and surfaces of a historic building, a combination of methods (tacheometry, photogrammetry and manual measurements) has often to be used. Each of the methods has its advantages, either in easy recording of global structures or in contributing a high level of details so a(More)
Terrestrial laser scanners have achieved a great popularity in the last decade. Their easy on-site application and the possibility of a flexible and high quality post processing added to their success also in architectural, archaeological and heritage documentation. We present a method for handling the automatic registration of point clouds which are(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)
