Title Magnet Misalignment Studies for the Front-end of the Neutrino Factory
Abstract In the Neutrino Factory Front-End the muon beam coming from the interaction of a high-power (4 MW) proton beam on a mercury jet target, is transformed through a buncher, a phase rotator and an ionization cooling channel before entering the downstream acceleration system. The muon Front-End channel is densely packed with solenoid magnets, normal conducting radio-frequency cavities and absorber windows (for the cooling section). The tolerance to the misalignment of the different components has to be determined in order on one hand to set the limits beyond which the performance of the Front-End channel would be degraded; on the other hand to optimize the design and assembly of the Front-End cells such that the component alignment can be checked and corrected for where crucial for the performance of the channel. In this paper we show the results of some of the simulations of the front-end channel performance where the magnetic field direction has been altered compared to the baseline.
