Inverse Cyclotrons for Intense Muon Beams – Phase I Kevin Paul Tech-X Corporation Don Summers University of Mississippi ABSTRACT: I will summarize the progress on the current SBIR Phase I to begin investigating the feasibility of using inverse cyclotrons for intense muon beams. This Phase I is intended to focus on the physics within the core of the cyclotron, where the muons are captured and trapped. The main limitation is believed to be space charge. As such, this Phase I is intended to explore what fields are needed to trap 2 × muons in the core and what the beam looks like after ejection.

Tech-X Corporation Muon Collider Design Workshop 2 Phase I Main Objectives Demonstrate ejection from the cyclotron in vacuum with VORPAL –What are the space charge limitations? Investigate effects of material (ionization, muon capture, recombination) on ejection with VORPAL –Is space charge force mitigated? –What are muon capture losses?
