Muon Colliders, Neutrino Factories, and Results from the MICE Experiment

24 Oct 2018  ·  Kaplan Daniel M. ·

Muon colliders and neutrino factories are attractive options for future facilities aimed at achieving the highest lepton-antilepton collision energies and precision measurements of parameters of the Higgs boson and the neutrino mixing matrix. The performance and cost of these depend on how well a beam of muons can be cooled... Recent progress in muon cooling design studies and prototype tests nourishes the hope that such facilities can be built starting in the coming decade. The status of the key technologies and their various demonstration experiments is summarized, with emphasis on recent results from the Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE). read more
