NUFACT00: Interface between machine and physics working group summary

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The goal of Working Group 3 at NUFACT00 was to arrive at a set of neutrino factory parameters, taking into account physics needs and accelerator limitations. Fortunately there has been much work on both the machine design and the physics phenomenology since the first neutrino factory proposal based on a very intense muon source was made in November 1997. In addition the discussions and consensus at NUFACT99 formed a solid foundation for the phenomenological work done between NUFACT99 and NUFACT00. In particular, the agreement between various calculations of the neutrino oscillation physics possibilities at a neutrino factory gives us some ... continued below

Description

The goal of Working Group 3 at NUFACT00 was to arrive at a set of neutrino factory parameters, taking into account physics needs and accelerator limitations. Fortunately there has been much work on both the machine design and the physics phenomenology since the first neutrino factory proposal based on a very intense muon source was made in November 1997. In addition the discussions and consensus at NUFACT99 formed a solid foundation for the phenomenological work done between NUFACT99 and NUFACT00. In particular, the agreement between various calculations of the neutrino oscillation physics possibilities at a neutrino factory gives us some confidence that the physics needs for oscillation physics are well understood if three flavor oscillation provides the right theoretical framework to describe the atmospheric and solar neutrino deficits. If it turns out that there is a surprise in store for us (for example, the LSND {nu}{sub {mu}} {r_arrow} {nu}{sub e} results are confirmed) then there may be a strong case for lower intensity and/or lower energy and shorter baseline experiments than described in the following. We can hope for a surprise, but since we can't count on one our considerations are based on more conventional three flavor oscillation scenarios.
