Progress of MICE, the International Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment

Ionization Cooling is the only practical solution to preparing high
5
brilliance muon beams for a neutrino factory or muon collider. The
6
muon ionization cooling experiment (MICE) is under development at the
7
Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (UK) by an international collaboration.

The muon beam line has been commissioned and, for the first time,
10
measurements of beam emittance with particle physics detectors have
11
been performed.

The remaining apparatus is currently under construction. First results
14
with a liquid-hydrogen absorber will be produced in 2013; a couple
15
of years later a full cell of a representative ionization cooling
16
channel, including RF re-acceleration, will be in operation. The design
17
offers opportunities to observe cooling with various absorbers and
18
several optics configurations. Results will be compared with detailed
19
simulations of cooling channel performance to ensure full understanding
20
of the cooling process.
