Abstract content
2
The International Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) will carry out
3
a systematic investigation of ionization cooling of a muon beam, for the
4
future Neutrino Factory and the Muon Collider.
5
As the emittance measurement will be done on a particle-by-particle basis,
6
a sophisticated beam instrumentation is needed to measure both particle
7
coordinates and timing vs RF in a harsh environment due to high particle
8
rates, fringe magnetic fields and RF backgrounds.
9

    
10
A PID system, based on three time-of-flight stations (with resolutions up
11
to 50 ps), two Aerogel Cerenkov counters and a KLOE-like calorimeter (KL)
12
has been constructed and has allowed the commissioning of the MICE muon
13
beamline in 2010.  It will be followed in  2012 by an Electron Muon Ranger
14
to determine the muon range at its downstream end and later by two tracker
15
detectors to trace incoming particles inside two high-field
16
superconducting solenoids.
17
Detector performances will be shown and their use for the beamline
18
characterization fully illustrated.
