Bunch Compressor for a Muon Collider
V.I.Balbekov, N.V.Mokhov, FNAL


Production of a short high-intensity bunch for a muon collider is considered.
A system proposed includes a 24-GeV proton driver, jet mercury target in a 20-T
solenoid, 30-m phase rotation-drift-decay channel, and 72-m bunch compressor
based on a ring cooler with an intensive emittance exchange. A 36-MHz
accelerating system with a gradient of 6.4~MV/m is used both in the phase
rotation channel and ring cooler. The system produces a single muon bunch
containing 0.11 muons per incident proton, with a longitudinal r.m.s. emittance
of 2.5 cm, and transverse one of about 0.63 cm.
