Beam-induced radiation in a muon storage ring for a neutrino factory

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Beam-induced radiation effects have been simulated for a 30-GeV and a 50-GeV muon storage ring designed for a neutrino factory. Calculations include power dissipation and residual dose rates on lattice components. It is shown that by appropriately shielding the superconducting magnets quench stability can be achieved along with residual dose rates which allow hands-on maintenance. Studies on tunnel shielding further showed that unlimited-occupancy areas could be achieved during machine operation if such enclosures are placed to the inside of the ring. Finally, neutrino-induced radiation levels were computed to large distances for outside the arcs and downstream of the production straights.
