The Potential of a TeV-Scale Muon-Ion Collider

  title={The Potential of a TeV-Scale Muon-Ion Collider},
  author={Darin Acosta and Emanuela Barberis and Nicholas J. Hurley and Wei Li and Osvaldo Miguel Colin and Darien Wood and Xunwu Zuo},
We propose the development of a novel muon-proton and muon-nucleus collider facility at the TeV scale that is capable of performing precision deep inelastic scattering measurements in new regimes and providing a rich program in nuclear and particle physics. Such a facility could seed, or leverage, the development of a muon-antimuon collider and make use of the existing hadron accelerator infrastructure when sited at a facility such as Brookhaven National Laboratory, Fermilab, or CERN. We… 

Main Parameters of the MC and FCC/SppC/LHC/RHIC based Muon-Nucleus Colliders

Construction of future Muon Collider (or dedicated µ -ring) tangential to nucleus colliders will give opportunity to realize µA collisions at multi-TeV center of mass energies at a luminosity of

Comment on $\mu p$ and $\mu A$ Luminosities of Muon-Ion Collider at BNL

Luminosities of muon-proton and muon-nucleus collisions at a recently proposed muon-ion collider (MuIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) in the USA have been estimated using “A Luminosity

A journey into the proton structure: Progresses and challenges

Unraveling the inner dynamics of gluons and quarks inside nucleons is a primary target of studies at new-generation colliding machines. Finding an answer to fundamental problems of Quantum

Stabilizing BFKL via heavy-flavor and NRQCD fragmentation

We bring evidence that the recently discovered property of natural stability of the high-energy resummation is directly connected to the fragmentation mechanism of heavy hadrons. As a

The high-energy limit of perturbative QCD: Theory and phenomenology

After a brief introduction of formal and phenomenological progresses in the study of the high-energy limit of perturbative QCD, we present arguments supporting the statement that the inclusive



Physics potential of a muon-proton collider

We propose a muon-proton collider with asymmetrical multi-TeV beam energies and integrated luminosities of 0.1 − 1 ab−1. With its large center-of-mass energies and yet small Standard Model
