We propose a six-year research and development program to
develop the hardware needed for ionization cooling, and demonstrate the
feasibility of using the ionization cooling technique
to produce cooled beams of positive and negative muons for a muon collider.
We propose to design and prototype critical sections of the muon ionization
cooling channel. These sections would be tested by measuring their performance
when exposed to single incoming muons with momenta in the range 100 --
300 MeV/c. The phase-space volume occupied by the population of muons upstream
and downstream of the cooling sections would be measured sufficiently well
to enable cooling to be demonstrated, the calculations used to design the
cooling system to be tested, and optimization of the cooling hardware to be
