Muon Collider Higgs Factory Mini-Workshop
at Fermilab ( Curia II, Wilson Hall )
The MAP Collaboration will host a mini-workshop to discuss the concept of a Muon Collider operating at the Higgs resonance, and discuss the challenges associated with this approach. A Muon Collider can provide s-channel production of the Higgs and can measure the Higgs mass and width to high accuracy, particularly if the muon polarization is used to calibrate the collision energy. The muon collider approach has unique challenges in beam intensity, muon collection, cooling and acceleration and in detector design and background management. Exploration of these challenges will be initiated in preparation for further development in the 2-day UCLA Higgs Factory Collider Workshop, which will be held in early 2013. The output of this workshop will also contribute to presentations and discussions on the muon-muon Higgs Collider option at CSS2013.
