Title Alternative Muon Cooling Options based on Particle-Matter-Interaction for a Neutrino Factory
Abstract An ionization cooling channel is a tightly spaced lattice containing absorbers for reducing the momentum of the muon beam, rf cavities for restoring the momentum and strong solenoids for focusing the beam. Such a lattice is an essential feature of most designs for Neutrino Factories and Muon Colliders. Here, we explore three different approaches for designing ionization cooling channels with periodic solenoidal focusing. Key parameters such as the engineering constraints that are arising from the length and separation between the solenoidal coils are systematically examined. In addition, we propose novel approaches for reducing the peak magnetic field inside the rf cavities by using either a magnetic shield system or a bucked coils configuration. Our lattice designs are numerically examined against two independent codes: The ICOOL and G4BL code. The feasibility of our proposed cooling channels to muon accelerators is examined by applying the proposed lattices to the front-end of a Neutrino Factory.
