A new experimental beam area, the Linac-area Test Facility, will be constructed at Fermilab beginning in spring 2001. This area will be used initially for cryogenic tests of liquid-hydrogen absorbers for the MUCOOL R&D program and, later, for high-power beam tests of absorbers and other prototype muon-cooling apparatus with the intense, 400-MeV, FNAL Linac proton beam. A new primary beamline will divert beam from the Linac to the test facility, taking advantage of civil construction left behind from the Linac Upgrade Project. This note specifies the range in beam parameters that will be available: a range intended to match the range in beam properties needed to test the prototype muon-cooling absorbers and structures. The hope is to design sufficient flexibility into control of the beam such that the facility will support not only this, but future technical applications as well.
