Direct measurement of emittance using the MICE scintillating fibre tracker (working title)

Working abstract

The Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) collaboration will demonstrate the feasibility of ionization cooling, the technique by which it is proposed to cool the moun beam at a future neutrino factory or muon collider. The muon beam emittance is measured on a particle-by-particle basis. Mea- surements are made before and after the cooling cell using a high precision scintillating-fibre tracker in a 4T solenoidal field. A pure muon beam is selected using a particle identification system that can reject efficiently both pions and electrons.
.
The emittance of the MICE muon beam has been measured for the first time using the scintillating- fibre tracking system. The performance of the tracking and particle identification detectors and the analysis techniques required for this precision measurement are presented.
