The physics potential of neutrino beams from muon storage rings

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

High-intensity neutrino beams could be produced using a very intense muon source, and allowing the muons to decay in a storage ring containing a long straight section. Taking the parameters of muon source designs that are currently under study for future high luminosity muon colliders, the characteristics of the neutrino beams that could be produced are discussed and some examples of their physics potential given. It is shown that the neutrino and antineutrino beam intensities may be sufficient to produce hundreds of neutrino interactions per year in a detector on the far side of the Earth.
