The Neutrino Factory has been proposed as a facility to provide an intense source
of neutrinos suitable for the measurement of neutrino oscillation parameters and a
possible CP violating phase to unprecedented precision. In the Neutrino Factory,
neutrinos are produced by the decay of a muon beam with 20-50 GeV per muon.
Initially, the muon beam occupies a large volume in phase space, which must be
reduced before the beam can be accelerated. The proposed method to achieve
this is to use a solenoidal ionisation cooling channel.
In this thesis the physics of the cooling channel is described including the
cooling effects of different materials and the beam optics of solenoidal focussing
and radio frequency cavities. The Muon Ionisation Cooling Experiment is de-
scribed, in which a section of a long cooling channel will be constructed at the
Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) in Oxfordshire, the cooling performance
measured and compared with computer simulation. The simulation of the cooling
channel in the G4MICE code is detailed and the accuracy of such simulations is
investigated. The beam dynamics of the simulated cooling channel is examined
and the cooling performance of the channel is studied. The cooling measurement
is simulated and the simulated measurement is compared with the simulated true
Here’s what’s next.
