Title Simulation of MICE using G4MICE
Abstract In the Muon Ionisation Cooling Experiment (MICE) muons will be fired through a cell of a muon ionisation cooling lattice. The results of the experiment will be used to optimise the cooling channel of a future Neutrino Factory. Upstream and downstream of the MICE cooling channel are two spectromenters is which will be used to measure the position of each muon in six-dimensional phase space. The behaviour of a beam of muons will be studied by collecting particles into bunches offline. The experiment will be run with a number of different input beams, magnet configurations, RF configurations and absorber types. We present the simulated detector and cooling performance of the MICE cooling channel using the G4MICE simulation code for a range of configurations. We detail the simulation of different absorber and field models and examine the cooling efficacy of the channel in the baseline case.
