Abstract:
Moving Solid Metallic Targets for Pion Production in the Muon Collider / Neutrino Factory Project
P.A. Thieberger and H.G. Kirk, Brookhaven National Laboratory

Three alloys are evaluated as possible candidates for designing moving solid targets for the Muon Collider / Neutrino Factory Project. The three materials considered are Super Invar (because of its very low expansion coefficient) and Inconel 718 and VascoMax C-350 (because of their large mechanical strength). According to criteria developed here, all three alloys appear to be viable candidates for both the 1 MW and the 4 MW options. Various relative advantages and disadvantages of the three candidate materials are discussed. Different possible scenarios for the use of these materials are considered.
