Abstract:
It is widely believed that a neutrino factory would
deliver unparallel performance in studying neutrino
mixing and would provide tremendous sensitivity to new
physics in the neutrino sector. Here we will describe and
simulate the front-end of the neutrino factory system,
which plays critical role in determining the number of
muons that can be accepted by the downstream
accelerators. In this system, a proton bunch on a target
creates secondaries that drift into a capture transport
channel. A sequence of rf cavities forms the resulting
muon beams into strings of bunches of differing energies,
aligns the bunches to nearly equal central energies, and
initiates ionization cooling. For this, the muon beams are
transported through sections containing high-gradient
cavities and strong focusing solenoids. In this paper we
present results of optimization and variation studies toward
obtaining the maximum number of muons for a neutrino
factory by using a compact transport channel.
