Isochronous pion decay channel for enhanced muon capture

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Intense muon beams have many potential applications, including neutrino factories and muon colliders. However, muons are produced in tertiary beams into a diffuse phase space. To make useful beams, the muons must be rapidly cooled before they decay. A promising new concept for the collection and cooling of muon beams is being investigated, namely, the use of a nearly Isochronous Helical Transport Channel (IHTC) to facilitate capture of muons into RF bunches. Such a distribution could be cooled quickly and coalesced into a single bunch to optimize the luminosity of a muon collider. We describe the IHTC and provide simulations ... continued below

Such a distribution could be cooled quickly and coalesced into a single bunch to optimize the luminosity of a muon collider. We describe the IHTC and provide simulations demonstrating isochronicity, even in the absence of RF and absorber.
