STUDY OF GRAPHITE TARGETS INTERACTING WITH THE 24 GEV PROTON BEAM OF THE BNL MUON TARGET EXPERIMENT.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A tightly focused beam on target is required in the muon collider/neutrino factory study. Specifically, up to 16 TP (1 TP = 10{sup 12} protons) per pulse of a 24 GeV proton beam are to be delivered on target, with a pulse length of a few microseconds and a beam spot of 1.5 mm rms sigma. Experiment E951 at BNL was set up to explore the potential of various target materials. Target integrity issues leads one to consider low-Z materials as potential targets. Thus, in the first phase of the E951 experiment, graphite and carbon-carbon composite targets were exposed to ... continued below

Description

A tightly focused beam on target is required in the muon collider/neutrino factory study. Specifically, up to 16 TP (1 TP = 10{sup 12} protons) per pulse of a 24 GeV proton beam are to be delivered on target, with a pulse length of a few microseconds and a beam spot of 1.5 mm rms sigma. Experiment E951 at BNL was set up to explore the potential of various target materials. Target integrity issues leads one to consider low-Z materials as potential targets. Thus, in the first phase of the E951 experiment, graphite and carbon-carbon composite targets were exposed to the AGS beam and their response to the induced thermal shock was studied. This paper presents theoretical prediction results as well as experimental results and makes an assessment of the abilities of prediction models to capture the dynamic response of the solid target.
