Title Simulated Measurements of Cooling in Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment
Contributors
Abstract The international Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) collaboration aims to demonstrate muon-beam cooling through ionization energy loss in material. Cooled muon beams are essential to enable future neutrino factory and muon collider facilities. A figure of merit for muon cooling in MICE is the root-mean-square (RMS) emittance reduction. To measure this, the individual muon positions and momenta will be reconstructed using two scintillating-fiber tracking detectors. However, due to the existence of nonlinear effects in beam optics leading to phase-space distortion, an apparent RMS emittance growth may be observed. In this paper, we describe an alternative approach to measuring the efficacy of muon cooling, the direct measurement of phase-space density using the kernel density estimation algorithm.
