Optimized capture section for staged Neutrino Factory target designs


  • Dr. Hisham SAYED

Abstract content

The Neutrino Factory 4MW target system is optimized to increase the captured muon count that fits within the acceptance of the subsequent acceleration section. A proposed staged Neutrino Factory, producing lower muon intensities of 10^20 muons per year assumes a 1 MW target station. The proton driver of the scaled down target station has a lower intensity and lower energy (3 GeV) which could be upgraded to the full power of 4 MW. In this work we present an optimized capture mechanism for both the baseline 8 GeV proton beam target and the 3GeV proton beam target. The capture section and the following bunching channel design are optimized to adapt for both cases.
