MICE Spectrometer Solenoid Recovery Review

Description
One of the principal deliverables of the U.S. Muon Accelerator Program to the International Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) hosted by Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) is a pair of Spectrometer Solenoid (SS) Magnets. On September 13, 2015, a failure occurred in one of the match coils on the downstream magnet while the magnet was being trained to full field. The aim of the present review is to provide a more detailed technical evaluation of the plans for operating the SS magnets in MICE Step IV and the plans to recover the required optics functionality for the MICE Cooling Demonstration.
