Abstract
2
--------------
3
Ionization Cooling is the only practical solution to preparing  high 
4
brilliance muon beams for a neutrino factory or muon collider. The muon 
5
ionization cooling experiment (MICE) is under development at the 
6
Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (UK) by an international collaboration.
7
The muon beam line has been commissioned and first measurements of 
8
emittance with particle physics detectors have been performed. The 
9
remaining apparatus is currently under construction. First results with 
10
a liquid-hydrogen absorber will be produced in 2013; a couple of years 
11
later a full cell of a representative ionization cooling channel, 
12
including RF re-acceleration, will be in operation. The design offers 
13
opportunities for tests with various absorbers and several optics 
14
configurations. Results will be compared with detailed simulations of 
15
cooling channel performance to ensure full understanding of the cooling 
16
process.
