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, both as Higgs Factories and compact high energy lepton colliders. The status and timescale of the research and development effort is… 

OPTIMIZING MUON CAPTURE AND TRANSPORT FOR A NEUTRINO FACTORY/MUON COLLIDER FRONT END

In the current baseline scheme of the Neutrino Factory/Muon Collider a muon beam from pion decay is produced by bombarding a liquid-mercury-jet target with a 4-MW pulsed proton beam. The target is

A large liquid argon time projection chamber for long-baseline, off-axis neutrino oscillation physics with the NuMI beam

Results from neutrino oscillation experiments in the last ten years have revolutionized the field of neutrino physics. While the overall oscillation picture for three neutrinos is now well

Thermal Shock Induced by a 24 GeV Proton Beam in the Test Windows of the Muon Collider Experiment E951 – Test Results and Theoretical Predictions

The need for intense muon beams for muon colliders and neutrino factories has lead to a concept of a high performance target station in which a 1-4 MW proton beam of 6-24 GeV impinges on a target

Progress in Muon Cooling Research and Development

The MuCool R&D programme is described. The aim of MuCool is to develop all key pieces of hardware required for ionization cooling of a muon beam. This effort will lead to a more detailed

DESIGN OF MAGNETS FOR THE TARGET AND DECAY REGION OF A MUON COLLIDER / NEUTRINO FACTORY TARGET ∗

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

A 4-MW Target Station for a Muon Collider or Neutrino Factory

We outline a program of engineering design and simulation for a target station and pion production/capture system for a 4-MW proton beam at the front end of a Muon Collider or a Neutrino Factory. The

Search My Schedule Home Title INFLUENCE OF PROTON BEAM EMITTANCES ON PARTICLE PRODUCTION OFF A MUON COLLIDER TARGET

A free-mercury-jet or a free-gallium-jet is considered for the pion-production target at a Muon Collider or Neutrino Factory. Based on a simple Gaussian incident proton beams with an infinitely large

GALLIUM AS A POSSIBLE TARGET MATERIAL FOR A MUON COLLIDER OR NEUTRINO FACTORY

We consider the potential for a free-gallium-jet as an option for the pion-production target at a Muon Collider or NeutrinoFactory. Advantagesofsuch a targetchoiceare its liquid state at relatively

The MERIT High-Power Target Experiment at the CERN PS.

The MERIT experiment was designed as a proof-of-principle test of a target system based on a free mercury jet inside a 15-T solenoid that is capable of sustaining proton beam powers of up to 4 MW.
