1 Project Update for the Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (RAL) Mark Palmer Fermilab December 15, 2014

2 Ionisation cooling formalism Exponential decrease in normalised emittance: Competition between: –dE/dx [cooling] and MCS [heating] Optimum: –Low Z, large X 0 –Tight focus –H 2 gives best performance December 15, 2014 M. A. Palmer | FNAL All Experimenter's Meeting2

3 MICE Steps IV & V Plan endorsed by MICE Project Board in April SS1- -Tracker1- -AFC- -FC- -Absorber- -SS2- -Tracker2- MICE Step IV Configuration -SS2- -Tracker2- -SS1- -Tracker1- -AFC1- -FC1- -Absorber1- -RFCC- CCM -AFC2- -Absorber2- -FC2- MICE Step V Configuration December 15, 2014 M. A. Palmer | FNAL All Experimenter's Meeting3 Operational 2015 Operational 2018 Legend: -SS=Spectrometer Solenoid- -FC=Focus Coil- -AFC=Absorber-Focus Coil Module- CCM=Coupling Coil Magnet -RFCC=RF-Coupling Coil Module-

4 Expedited Muon Cooling Demonstration Plan developed in response to P5 recommendations -SS1- -Tracker1- -AFC- -FC- -Absorber- -SS2- -Tracker2- Legend: -SS=Spectrometer Solenoid- -FC=Focus Coil- -AFC=Absorber-Focus Coil Module- -RFA=RF-Absorber Module- -SS2- -Tracker2- -SS1- -Tracker1- -AFC1- -FC1- -AFC2- Primary -Absorber- -FC2- RFA1- RFA2- Secondary -Absorber2- Secondary -Absorber1- NEW Expedited MICE Cooling Demonstration December 15, 2014 M. A. Palmer | FNAL All Experimenter's Meeting4 Operational 2017 Represents reduced cost and technical risk relative to MICE Step V Operational 2015

5 September-November 2014 August DOE Review of MAP –Detailed report for the new MICE Cooling Demonstration requested on the 1 month timescale September 25 th –Report to DOE accepted September 29 th –Plan for 3-year MAP Conclusion presented to HEPAP Supports completion of the MICE Demonstration And controlled closeout of other activities November –MICE Project Board Review Expedited MICE Demonstration endorsed by the review committee and the international Funding Agencies Committee December 15, 2014 M. A. Palmer | FNAL All Experimenter's Meeting5

6 MICE-US Construction Project Scope Step IV –Spectrometer Solenoids (2) – Delivered to RAL –LiH Absorber – Delivered RAL –Partial Return Yoke - In Fabrication –Installation and Commissioning Spectrometer Solenoids Fiber Trackers PRY Cooling Demonstration –RF Test and Characterization Program in MTA –2 Single-Cavity RF Modules NO RFCC MODULE –Final Step PRY –Installation and Commissioning Reconfigured Step IV Hardware RF Systems Extended PRY December 15, 2014 M. A. Palmer | FNAL All Experimenter's Meeting6

7 MICE Hall: Being readied for PRY Installation PRY: –Preparation for installation of bases and restraints on track: Expect to be installing first set of “uprights” starting January 2015 Emphasis now shifting to commissioning and operations … 7 December 15, 2014 M. A. Palmer | FNAL All Experimenter's Meeting

8 Step IV Wrapped with Partial Return Yoke (PRY) December 15, 2014 M. A. Palmer | FNAL All Experimenter's Meeting8

9 MICE Steps 9 Step IV: Study of material, lattice, momentum and emittance to start Q2 CY2015 Ionization cooling demonstration: –RF Components under test in the MTA and at Daresbury Lab –Expect that all necessary hardware will be deployed by Spring 2017 –Full demonstration with RF commences by Summer 2017 December 15, 2014 M. A. Palmer | FNAL All Experimenter's Meeting
