In previous versions, the muon front end was matched to 201.25 MHz, the baseline Fermilab Linac acceleration frequency. In this note we rematch the front end to 325 MHz, a baseline acceleration frequency for Project X. The rematch requires shorter, higher-gradient rf cavities, but results in a more compact and possibly more affordable system. We demonstrate that a 325 MHz system is possible with s ... More

We present a staged approach for muon based facilities for intensity and energy frontier science, building upon existing and proposed facilities at Fermilab. Each stage would provide both a project exploring new physics as well as provide an R&D platform to develop technology needed for following stages. The program could begin with nuSTORM, which would provide precision neutrino measurements whi ... More

Analyses of neutrino mass hierarchy determinations at future experiments determine an expected Delta Chi^2. As the hierarchy is a discrete choice, and not a continuous degree of freedom, this Delta Chi^2 does not obey Wilks' theorem. As a consequence it does not follow a chi^2 distribution and its square root is not the number s of sigmas of confidence that can be expected. I will present a sim ... More

A neutrino factory provides a well defined neutrino beam with a wide range of oscillation channels for the direct detection of CP violation in the neutrino sector.

The European Spallation Source (ESS) neutrino super beam has the prospective to become the world’s most intense neutrino beam facility and has possibly the best physics potential for the discovery of leptonic CP-violation and neutrino mass hierarchy. The adaptation of the secondary-beam elements of CERN's SPL (Superconductive Proton Linac) neutrino super beam to ESS requirements is discussed in ... More

A Neutrino Factory based on muon beams and a Muon Collider both require an intense source of muons with similar parameters: collection of pions/muon of low energy and both signs from a multimegawatt proton beam with pulses at 10-100 Hz and only 2 ns duration. A Target System based on capture in a solenoid field (rather than a toroidal field) has been studied. An initial strong magnetic field fo ... More

The LAGUNA-LBNO European design study aims at defining a deep underground neutrino observatory for the study of neutrino oscillations at long baselines, the investigation of the Grand Unification of elementary forces and for the detection of known and unknown astrophysical sources of neutrinos. For the neutrino oscillation studies, the project is specifically considering long baseline neutrino bea ... More

The MEG experiment at PSI is searching for the lepton-flavour violating decay mu-> e gamma with unprecedented sensitivity. MEG set the most stingent experimental bound to date, based on the analysis of 2009, 2010 and 2011 data, to be <5.7 x 10**-13. After a successful run in 2012 and a final run in 2013 also a MEG Upgrade is envisaged, with a new positron spectrometer and an improved gamma ray d ... More

The controversy over the significant difference between the determination of proton radius using high-precision muonic hydrogen techniques and from electronic scattering and atomic measurements is called the "Proton Radius Puzzle" (PRP). The resolution of the puzzle remains unclear and appears to require new experimental results. The MUSE Collaboration will perform an experiment at the Paul Scherr ... More

The Mu2e collaboration will search for coherent, neutrino-less conversion of muons into electrons in the field of a nucleus with sensitivity of one detected event for a branching fraction of ~2x10^-17; this would improve on the existing upper limit by a factor of ~10^4. Such a lepton flavor-violating reaction probes new physics at a scale inaccessible to direct searches at either currently operati ... More

We present the design of a muon storage ring for a Neutrino source from a STORage ring for Muons (NuSTORM). In this facility a high-intensity proton beam produces ~5 GeV pions that decay into muons that are captured in a ~3.8 GeV/c racetrack storage ring. Muon decays in the long straight sections provide neutrino beams of precisely known flux and flavor that can be used for precision measurements. ... More

The moderately large value of $\theta_{13}$, measured recently by reactor experiments, is very welcome news for upcoming accelerator experiments. In particular, the NO$\nu$A experiment, with 3 years of $\nu$ run followed by an equal $\bar{\nu}$ run, will be able to determine the mass hierarchy if one of the following two favorable combinations is true: normal hierarchy with \$-180^\cir ...

T2K (Tokai to Kamioka) magnetic horn system in the J-PARC neutrino facility is designed for a 30GeV 750kW proton beam. The design current for the horns is 320kA (peak) with a half-sine wave (2-3msec). The horns are contained inside a large helium vessel and are operated in a helium atmosphere in order to reduce tritium and NOx productions. The current horns have been used from 2009 and have be ...

A new measurement of the anomalous magnetic moment (g-2) and electric dipole moment (EDM) of the positive muon is proposed with a novel technique utilizing an ultra-cold muons accelerated to 300 MeV/c and a 66 cm-diameter compact muon storage ring without focusing-electric field. This measurement will be complementary to the previous BNL experiment and proposed continuation at FNAL with the muon b ... More
