A new scenario for capture, bunching and phase-energy rotation of mu's
from a proton source is explored. In an initial example, it consists
of a drift section, a changing frequency ~300 to ~200 MHz bunching section,
followed by a fixed or changing frequency (~200 MHz) fi-dE rotation section.
The system is a preferred alternative to the induction linac + buncher scenarios
developed for the neutrino factory feasibility studies. The total rf required
for this system is relatively modest, it uses established technology, and it
should be substantially less expensive than previous induction linac or
low-frequency systems. It would also simultaneously capture both positive
and negative muons in similar bunch trains. Optimization and variations
are discussed; the concept can work for a wide range of rf frequencies
and bunch train lengths.
