Based upon recent success in ultra-slow positive muon production by employing laser resonant-ionization of the thermal muonium, a new scheme of muon colliders and a new production method of an intense and bright high-energy neutrino (v¯[sub μ],v[sub e]) beam are proposed. There, by using these muons as ion sources, one can accelerate and store to produce high-energy/high-intensity muon beams and high-quality neutrino beams. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    A large admittance sector cyclotron filled with LiH wedges surrounded by helium or hydrogen gas is explored. Muons are cooled as they spiral adiabatically into a central swarm. As momentum approaches zero, the momentum spread also approaches zero. Long bunch trains coalesce. Energy loss is used...

    We discuss the conceptual design of a system to reduce the 6D emittance of a circulating muon beam. This system utilizes ionization cooling to achieve 6D phase reduction of the beam. Our design is based on a hydrogen gas filled ring which incorporates optics consisting of weak-focusing dipoles...
