Ionization Cooling for a Neutrino Factory

Jocelyn Monroe, (FNAL)


Ionization Cooling reduces the size and divergence of a muon beam using material targets, in which the muon beam isotropically loses momentum, and RF acceleration, where only logitudinal momentum is replaced. Solenoidal magnetic fields are used to transport and focus the muon beam. Priciples of Ionization Cooling Channels for a Neutrino Factory will be discussed, in the context of the recently completed six-month design study for this facility at FNAL.

2:30pm, Smith Lab 4079
