Acceleration stages for a muon collider

Proceedings of the 1999 Particle Accelerator Conference (Cat. No.99CH36366), 1999

Using muons in high energy colliders has an advantage in that the muons emit negligible synchrotron radiation, but has the disadvantage that the lifetime of the muons is very short. The latter requires that the muons be accelerated as rapidly as possible to prevent particle loss. The former allows one to loop back and pass through the same linac multiple ...

  • Acceleration stages for a muon collider

    Using muons in high energy colliders has an advantage in that the muons emit negligible synchrotron radiation, but has the disadvantage that the lifetime of the muons is very short. The latter requires that the muons be accelerated as rapidly as possible to prevent particle loss. The former allows one to loop back and pass through the same linac multiple times, thereby achieving potentially significant cost advantages. Some of the acceleration systems will use recirculating linacs to achieve the reuse of the accelerating structures. However, the large longitudinal beam emittances make it difficult to simultaneously achieve large gradients by using high frequency RF and design an arc with a sufficient energy acceptance. The current state of the design for the acceleration stages for a muon collider is presented, with emphasis on systems accelerating to 70 GeV per beam. Known difficulties will be described as will their possible solutions. In particular, the use of an FFAG-like lattice for the arcs of a recirculating linac is described which accepts a beam with a very large energy spread over a wide range of energies, allowing a single are to be used instead of multiple arcs.

  • The MANX muon cooling demonstration experiment

    MANX is an experiment to prove that effective six- dimensional (6D) muon beam cooling can be achieved in a Helical Cooling Channel (HCC) using ionization- cooling with helical and solenoidal magnets in a novel configuration. The aim is to demonstrate that 6D muon beam cooling is understood well enough to plan intense neutrino factories and high-luminosity muon colliders. The experiment consists of the HCC magnet that envelops a liquid helium energy absorber, upstream and downstream instrumentation to measure the beam parameters before and after cooling, and emittance matching sections between the detectors and the HCC.

  • Conceptual design of a magnet system to generate 20 T in a 0.15 m diameter bore, employing an inductor precooled by liquid nitrogen

    The research program for an eventual neutrino factory or muon collider needs a magnet of /spl sim/0.15 m diameter bore to generate /spl sim/20 T over a length of /spl sim/0.3 m. Downstream for /spl sim/3 m the held should fall gradually to /spl sim/1.25 T, while the bore increases fourfold inversely as the square root of the field. A conventional magnet would require /spl sim/40 MW; a superconducting or hybrid magnet might cost tens of millions of dollars. An economically feasible system employs a pulse magnet precooled by liquid nitrogen, with two sets of coils energized sequentially. An outer set of coils of /spl sim/12 tons, energized in /spl sim/20 s by a 16 kA, 250 V supply available at Brookhaven National Laboratory, generates a peak field of /spl sim/9 T and stores /spl sim/20 MJ. A resistor of /spl sim/ 1/4 /spl Omega/ inserted across the terminals of the set introduces a voltage drop, initially /spl sim/4 kV, to energize an inner set of coils to /spl sim/10 kA in /spl sim/ 1/4 s. This set adds /spl sim/13 T to the /spl sim/7 T remaining from the enter set, whose current has decayed to /spl sim/12 kA. Complicating the design is a superconducting coil, once part of the PEP-4 detector at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, that begins only /spl sim/2.2 m downstream and is sensitive to eddy-current heating by rapid flux changes. Therefore the proposed magnet system includes a conventional DC coil of/spl sim/0.7 MW to distance the pulse magnet from the PEP-4 coil. Also, a bucking coil in series with the outer set reduces by an order of magnitude the pulsed flux seen by the PEP-4 coil. The bucking coil serves also to reduce the axial force on the PEP-4 cryostat to below its limit of 200 kN.

  • Optimization of the target for muon colliders

    We analyze the design of the target for pion production and energy deposition for the muon-muon collider using the nuclear cascade codes. Heat removal from high-energy deposition in the target is discussed, together with the use of a target compressed by a laser, or light- and heavy-ions drivers. The latter approach needs further technological development, but it can reduce substantially the energy needed to collect and control the produced muons.

  • A bunch stacking (emittance exchange) scheme for a muon collider

    An emittance exchange scheme was studied with a simple simulation model where time-separated muon minibunches were stacked transversely through mini-bunch kicker, a solenoid delay channel, and a septum-type kicker. By stacking N mini muon bunches, we obtain the longitudinal phase space reduction of 1/N in maximum, which then be converted into the increased muon transverse phase space by a factor N in minimum due to the 6 dimensional phase space conservation. Limitations in the efficiency of the emittance exchange in this scheme was discussed. The emittance exchange is a key element to obtain the 10E-5 to 10E-6 phase space cooling in the 6 dimensional muon phase space for a mu+mu-collider.

  • A complete scheme of ionization cooling for a muon collider

    A complete scheme for production and cooling a muon beam for three specified muon colliders is presented. Parameters for these muon colliders are given. The scheme starts with the front end of a proposed neutrino factory that yields bunch trains of both muon signs. Emittance exchange cooling in slow helical lattices reduces the longitudinal emittance until it becomes possible to merge the trains into single bunches, one of each sign. Further cooling in all dimensions is applied to the single bunches in further slow helical lattices. Final transverse cooling to the required parameters is achieved in 50 T solenoids using high T<sub>C</sub> superconductor at 4 K. Preliminary simulations of each element are presented.

  • Muon storage rings for 6D phase-space cooling

    We describe several storage ring designs for reducing the 6-dimensional phase space of circulating muon beams. These rings utilize quadrupole and dipole magnets as well as wedge-shaped, liquid-hydrogen, energy-loss absorbers and energy compensating rf cavities. We obtain evaluations of their cooling performance by particle tracking simulation. Such rings are potentially useful for future Neutrino Factories or Muon Colliders as well as for existing facilities in which cooled, intense muon beams could enhance their physics programs.

  • Thermodynamic interaction of the primary proton beam with a mercury jet target at a neutrino factory source

    This paper addresses the thermodynamic interaction of an intense proton beam with the proposed mercury jet target at a neutrino factory or muon collider source, and the consequences of the generated pressure waves on the target integrity. Specifically, a 24 GeV proton beam with approximately 1.6e13 protons per pulse and a pulse length of 2 nanosec will interact with a 1 cm diameter mercury jet within a 20 Tesla magnetic field. In one option, a train of six such proton pulses is to be delivered on target within 2 microsec, in which case the state of the mercury jet following the interaction with each pulse is critical. Using the equation of state for mercury from the SESAME library, in combination with the energy deposition rates calculated the by the hadron interaction code MARS, the induced 3-D pressure field in the target is estimated. The consequent pressure wave propagation and attenuation in the mercury jet is calculated using an ANSYS code transient analysis, and the state of the mercury jet at the time of arrival of the subsequent pulse is assessed. The amplitude of the pressure wave reaching the nozzle that ejects the mercury jet into the magnetic field is estimated and the potential for mechanical damage is addressed.

  • A normal conducting accelerator for a muon collider demonstration machine

    We present a 250 GeV linac arrangement using normal conducting cavities that could be used for a muon collider demonstration machine. One scenario consists of six 200 MHz linacs and rapid cycling pulsed magnets to be installed in a tunnel with six straight sections. The RF parameters of the cavities are given. Another scenario consists of 800 MHz. Also addressed is the possibility of using normal conducting cavities with liquid nitrogen cooling, which has several advantages.

  • Shielding the muon collider interaction region

    One of the most serious technical problems in the design of a 2-TeV muon collider arises from muon decay. With 2/spl times/10/sup 12/ muons in a 2-TeV bunch, 2/spl times/10/sup 5/ /spl mu//spl rarr/e/spl nu//spl nu/~ decays occur per meter. Immersed in strong magnetic fields, the induced electromagnetic showers deposit about 2 kW/meter in the storage ring; far surpassing the heat load capacity of cryogenic systems. Yet a more problematic background is the intense, highly directional, neutrino flux generated by the decays. This background does not respond to conventional shielding techniques; in fact the total radiation dose from neutrino interactions is worsened in the presence of shielding. The work presented here discusses methods to reduce or compensate for the severe decay backgrounds and radiation produced in a very high-energy muon collider.
