Y,++N+ = 0.309 and Y,-+,,- = 0.315 for the 30-cm Hg target, i.e., at 16 GeV
(best Hg)/(best C) = 1.7 (+) and 2.06 (-).
3 Beam power considerations
The yield per beam power is almost independent of Ep for high-Z targets at
6< Ep <24 GeV and drops by 30% at 16 GeV from a 6-GeV peak for graphite
(Fig. 6 (left)). The higher Ep reduces the number of protons on target. To
provide X= 2x 1020 muon decays per year in the straight section at 15 Hz, one
needs to have 6x 1012 muons per pulse in the decay channel, assuming a factor
of 3 total loss on the way from the decay channel to the ring. With that, needed
are 3.30x 10'3 and 3.92x 10'3 protons per pulse at 16 GeV on the optimal C
target for positives and negatives, respectively. This corresponds to 1.27 and
1.51 MW beams. For a Hg target, these numbers are 1.7 and 2.06 times lower.
Fig. 6 (right) shows the required number of protons N, and beam power as
a function of Ep for the C target, while Fig. 7 presents power dissipation and
