The building of a muon collider is motivated by the desire to collide point-like particles while reducing the limitations imposed by synchrotron radiation. The many challenges unique to muon accelerators are derived from the short lifetime of the muons. The muons must be produced, then formed into a beam and accelerated to their final energy in less than a few milliseconds in the lab frame. One idea for accomplishing this is called a helical cooling channel, and requires placing the… CONTINUE READING
