Advanced Accelerator Group
The Advanced Accelerator Group investigates the application of new accelerator concepts to the design of future particle physics facilities. Our main emphasis is presently on the design of a high performance neutrino factory and a muon collider. Some major theoretical and simulation work includes the design of ionization cooling systems, improving the quality of low energy muon beams, and the study of FFAG accelerators, both in general and specifically for rapid acceleration of muon beams. We are key participants in two experimental efforts: MERIT, an experiment to study a liquid mercury jet as a target for a multi-MW proton beam, and EMMA, a machine to study the properties of linear non-scaling FFAGs.
