Contribution Oral Presentation
MICE in 10 minutes
The Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, an important R&D step towards a future muon collider or neutrino factory has studied ionization cooling of muons. Several million individual muon tracks have been recorded passing through a series of focusing magnets and a liquid hydrogen or lithium hydride absorber in a variety of magnetic configurations. Identification and measurement of muon tracks upstream and downstream of the absorber are used to study the evolution of the 4D (transverse) beam phase-space volume. This talk presents and discusses these results.
