Abstract:
PARTICLE PRODUCTION AND RADIATION ENVIRONMENT
AT A NEUTRINO FACTORY TARGET STATION

N.V. Mokhov, FNAL, Batavia, IL 60510, USA

Efficient production and collection of a large number of muons is needed
to make a neutrino factory based on a muon storage ring viable. The results
of extensive MARS simulations are reported for Megawatt proton beams on
a carbon rod and mercury jet in a 20-T hybrid solenoid, followed by
a matching section and decay channel. Beam energy and power in a 2 to 30 GeV
range, beam spot size, beam and target tilt angle, target material and dimensions,
and capture system parameters are optimized to get maximum muon yields at the end
of the decay channel. Other particles transported down the beam line are also
studied for the purpose of beam instrumentation. Prompt and residual radiation
distributions are calculated and analysis of target integrity,
quench stability and dynamic heat load to the superconducting coils, radiation
damage and activation of materials near the beam is performed. Absorption of
showers in the direction of a primary beam is considered.
