Muon storage rings have been proposed for use as sources of intense high-energy neutrino beams and as the basis for muon colliders. Phase-space compression (cooling) of the muon beam prior to acceleration and storage is needed to optimise performance and cost. Traditional techniques cannot be employed to cool the beam because of decay during the short muon lifetime. Ionisation cooling, a process in which the muon beam is passed through an alternating series of liquid-hydrogen absorbers anddoi:10.1109/pac.2005.1590445 fatcat:noj3fv6gsrfnfj2nukqbmo2e6e
