The international Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) is designed to provide a proof-of-principle demonstration of ionization cooling, for application in a future Neutrino Factory or Muon Collider facility. Ionization cooling involves the reduction of the phase space of a muon beam via a series of absorbers, with subsequent re-acceleration in the longitudinal direction provided by RF cavities. Specifically MICE is required to take a muon beam of tunable emittance between 140 MeV/c and 240 MeV/c, and reduce the emittance by ~10%, measured before and after cooling with an absolute precision of 0.1%. The emittance measurement is provided by two scintillating fiber trackers, one at either end of the cooling channel. Each tracker is surrounded by a 5 T superconducting solenoid. This poster describes the design and construction of the MICE trackers and their in use in the MICE emittance measurement.
