The MICE beamline PID instrumentation for a precise emittance measurement.

The International Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) will carry out
4
a systematic investigation of ionization cooling of a muon beam, for the
5
future Neutrino Factory and the Muon Collider. As the emittance measurement
6
will be done on a particle-by-particle basis, a sophisticated beam 
7
instrumentation is needed to measure both particle coordinates and timing 
8
vs RF in a harsh environment due to high particle rates, fringe magnetic 
9
fields and RF backgrounds. A PID system, based on three x/y time-of-flight 
10
stations (with resolutions around 50 ps), two Aerogel Cerenkov counters and 
11
a KLOE-like calorimeter (KL) has been constructed and has allowed the 
12
commissioning of the MICE muon beamline. 
13
PID detector performances will be shown and their use for a preliminary
14
estimate of the beamline emittance and the MICE muon beam pion contamination
15
will be illustrated.
