1. 20to2T5m target system configuration, field along the solenoid axis, and target geometry The geometric parameters of a carbon target for a Muon Accelerator Staging Study were optimized to maximize particle production by an incident, parallel proton beam with kinetic energies (KE) at 6.75-GeV using the MARS15 (2014) code (denoted MARS15 below). The(More)
The target station at a 4-MW Muon Collider or Neutrino Factory will have a target module inside a shielding module inside a 15-20 T superconducting magnet. The target itself is a free mercury jet, moving at 20 m/s at an small angle to the magnetic axis, so as later to be collected in a mercury pool/beam dump. The replaceable target module includes the(More)
Scalable photonic quantum technologies require on-demand single-photon sources with simultaneously high levels of purity, indistinguishability, and efficiency. These key features, however, have only been demonstrated separately in previous experiments. Here, by s-shell pulsed resonant excitation of a Purcell-enhanced quantum dot-micropillar system, we(More)
The baseline target concept for a Muon Collider or Neutrino Factory is a free mercury jet within a 20-T magnetic field being impacted by an 8-GeV proton beam. A pool of mercury serves as a receiving reservoir for the mercury and a dump for the unexpended proton beam. Modifications to this baseline are discussed in which the field at the target is reduced(More)
Serpentinization potentially contributes to the origin and evolution of life during early history of the Earth. Serpentinization produces molecular hydrogen (H2) that can be utilized by microorganisms to gain metabolic energy. Methane can be formed through reactions between molecular hydrogen and oxidized carbon (e.g., carbon dioxide) or through biotic(More)
The first phase of a Muon Collider/Neutrino Factory program may use a 6.75-GeV proton driver with beam power of only 1 MW. At this lower power it is favorable to use a graphite target (replaced quarterly) with beam and target tilted slightly to the axis of the 15-20 T pion-capture solenoid around the target. The low-energy proton beam is significantly(More)
We consider the potential for a free-gallium-jet as an option for the pion-production target at a Muon Collider or Neutrino Factory. Advantages of such a target choice are its liquid state at relatively low temperature, its relatively efficient meson production, and its lower activation (compared to mercury). Using the MARS15 code, we have simulated(More)
