Physics Colloquium: Muon Cooling and Future Muon Facilities
Date: Wednesday, November 28, 2012
Time: 03:45 PM
Location: 206 Gallalee Hall
Cost: No charge
Professor Daniel Kaplan, of Illinois Institute of Technology, will give a colloquium titled, "Muon Cooling and Future Muon Facilities" on Wednesday, November 28 at 3:45 p.m. in Room 227 of Gallalee Hall. The lecture is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the department of physics and astronomy.
Muon colliders and neutrino factories are attractive options for future facilities aimed at achieving the highest lepton-antilepton collision energies and precision measurements of parameters of the Higgs boson and the neutrino mixing matrix. The performance and cost of these depend sensitively on how well a beam of muons can be cooled. Recent progress in muon cooling design studies and prototype tests nourishes the hope that such facilities can be built during the next decade. The status of the key technologies and their various demonstration experiments will be summarized.
