About This PhD Project

Project Description

A future Neutrino Factory or Muon Collider will use intense beams of stored muons. As muons are produced as tertiary particles (from the decay of pions which themselves come from a proton collision), they have to be “cooled” before injection into an accelerator. The short lifetime (~2 μs) means that novel cooling techniques are required. The international Muon Ionisation Cooling Experiment (MICE) is studying such techniques, and Sheffield has a leading role in the project. A PhD student working on MICE will gain experience of hardware and software development, taking part in a running UK-based experiment but attending meetings with collaborators around the world.
