The potentially large background produced from the decay products of muons could affect the quality of the physics in a high energy muon collider. This paper examines the kinds of background present and their expected rate. The results are based on a simulation of muon colliders with center of mass energies of 100 GeV, 500 GeV and 4 TeV. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We derive necessary conditions for the plasma compensation to work in muon colliders. For this, we analyze the suppression of beam fields by the plasma, collisional diffusion of the return plasma current, possible beam filamentation, and dynamics of plasma ions. We show that a good compensation...

    A helical cooling channel (HCC) has been proposed to quickly reduce the six-dimensional phase space of muon beams for muon colliders, neutrino factories, and intense muon sources. Simulation studies of the HCC have already verified the use of a channel with solenoidal, and helical magnetic...

    It has been observed [1] that breakdown in an 805 MHz pill-box cavity occurs at much lower gradients as an external axial magnetic field is increased. This effect was not observed with on open iris cavity. It is proposed that this effect depends on the relative angles of the magnetic and maximum...

    Muon acceleration is one of the most difficult stages to develop for a Neutrino Factory or Muon Collider. The large transverse and longitudinal admittances which must be designed into the system and the rapidity with which acceleration must take place because of muon decay preclude the use of...
