Beam-Induced Radiation in a Muon Storage Ring for a Neutrino Factory


Beam-induced radiation effects have been simulated for a 30-GeV and a 50-GeV muon
storage ring designed for a neutrino factory. Calculations include power dissipation
and residual dose rates on lattice components. It is shown that by appropriately
shielding the superconducting magnets quench stability can be achieved along with
residual dose rates which allow hands-on maintenance. Studies on tunnel shielding
futher showed that unlimited-occupancy areas could be achieved during machine
operation if such enclosures are placed to the inside of the ring. Finally,
neutrino-induced radiation levels were computed to large distances for outside
the arcs and downstream of the production straights.
