Energy Loss (Preliminary)¶
The cooling term of the ionization cooling equation is given by the "Bethe equation". A better understanding of the equation in hydrogen and lithium hydride is necessary in order to make more realistic predictions of the emittance reduction.
Data has been taken for several different muon beams traversing the lithium hydride absorber.
MICE measures the momentum upstream and downstream of the absorber using information from the trackers combined with measurements of the time of flight.
