Title Computed Pion Yields from a Tantalum Rod Target: Comparing MARS15 and GEANT4 across Proton Energies
Abstract The choice of proton driver energy is an important variable in maximising the pion flux available in later stages of the neutrino factory. Simulations of pion production using a range of energies are presented and cross-checked for reliability between the codes MARS15 and GEANT4. The distributions are combined with postulated apertures for the pion decay channel and muon front-end to estimate the usable muon flux after capture losses. Resolution of discrepancies between the codes awaits experimental data in the required energy range.
