Beam Halo and Scraping the 7th Icfa Mini-workshop on High Intensity High Brightness

Abstract

A superconducting proton linac delivering a mean beam<lb>power of 4 MW is being considered at CERN as a<lb>potential front end for the proton driver of a neutrino<lb>factory. Built mostly with the rf equipment to be<lb>recuperated from LEP after its decommissioning, it would<lb>provide Hions at a kinetic energy of 2 GeV, which is<lb>adequate for the production of pions and muons. The<lb>requirements specific to a neutrino factory are<lb>summarized, and the basic design of such a linac-based<lb>proton driver is given. Subjects of further studies are<lb>outlined.
