1. Rol 8/29/2006 NuFact06 1 A Shared Superconducting Linac for Protons and Muons Advances in muon cooling imply that a muon beam can be accelerated in high-frequency SC RF. A Greenfield neutrino factory can use this capability so the proton driver and muon RLA use the same Linacs. High intensity comes by increasing the rep rate.
We comment on the status of related muon cooling research.

5. Rol 8/29/2006 NuFact06 5 Features of the Shared HF Linac Depends on effective 6D muon cooling
Cooling and adiabatic damping make the muon beam emittance match the Linac acceptance
Aligns MC and NF R&D
Reduces costs of PD, muon RLA, storage ring
Goal is to show savings more than pay for muon cooling
Double duty design
FODO Linac needed for 7 passes

~5.5 GeV Proton energy for best captured µ/p per Watt
Increase rep rate for more neutrinos, easier targetry
