A practical high-energy high-luminosity {mu}{sup +} {minus} {mu}{sup {minus}} collider

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We present a candidate design for a high-energy high-luminosity {mu}{sup +}{minus}{mu} collider, with E{sub cm} = 4 TeV, L = 3 {times} 10{sup 4}cm{sup {minus}2}s{sup {minus}1}, using only existing technology. The design uses a rapid-cycling medium-energy proton synchrotron, which produces proton beam pulses which are focused onto two {pi}-producing targets, with two {pi}-decay transport lines producing {mu}{sup +{prime}}s. The {mu}`s are collected, rf-rotated, cooled and compressed into a recirculating linac for acceleration, and then transferred into a storage ring collider. The keys to high luminosity are maximal {mu} collection and cooling; innovations with these goals are presented, and future plans ... continued below

The keys to high luminosity are maximal {mu} collection and cooling; innovations with these goals are presented, and future plans for collider development are discussed. This example demonstrates a novel high-energy collider type, which will permit exploration of elementary particle physics at energy frontiers beyond the reach of currently existing and proposed electron and hadron colliders.
