The International Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) will carry out

a systematic investigation of ionization cooling of a muon beam, for the

future Neutrino Factory and the Muon Collider. As the emittance measurement

will be done on a particle-by-particle basis, a sophisticated beam

instrumentation is needed to measure both particle coordinates and timing

vs RF in a harsh environment due to high particle rates, fringe magnetic

PID detector performances will be shown and their use for a preliminary

will be illustrated.
