We designed two storage ring models for 6 dimensional phase space cooling
of intense muon beam for the neutrino factory and the muon collider, by using
the SYNCH code. We demonstrate the 6 dimensional muon phase space cooling
with the first 8 cell cooling ring model by using a tracking simulation code,
ICOOL, with distributed Lithium lenses with the beta at 30 cm, wedge
absorbers, and RF cavities, with the muon momentum at 500 MeV/c. Phase space
cooling is done by the transverse ionization cooling, and the wedge absorbers
contribute to the emittance exchange from the longitudinal phase space to
the transverse phase space.
The second muon cooling ring has a 1.25 m long Lithium lens with the beta
at 1 cm in a straight section of a race track ring. Tracking simulation study
is in progress to demonstrate the 6 dimensional phase space cooling of muon
