The MERIT experiment at the CERN PS
A proof-of-principle test of a target station suitable for a Neutrino Factory or Muon Collider source using a 24-GeV proton beam incident on a target consisting of a free mercury jet that is inside a 15-T capture solenoid magnet.
Proposal submitted to CERN – May 2004
Experiment approved as nTOF11
MERIT: 180 J/g (+25°C)
Hg-jet hydraulic system
Left – 30cm – 15cm – magnetic centre – 15 cm - Right
IR is enclosed in solenoid to capture pions
15 T, liquid N2 cooled, copper
Interaction length optimised to reduce re-interaction
Cooling Stresses: 50MPa / 200MPa
Disruption Length increases rapidly in no field
Disrupted material moves faster with no field
