A High Intensity Neutrino Oscillation Facility in Europe
Status: - advanced - awaiting MICE results - RF studies - alternatives under study
The linac consists of SC RF cavities and iron shielded SC solenoids grouped into three types of cryo-modules.NF – Acceleration
Chicanes have a vertical dipole spreader, horizontal bending magnets, quadrupoles for transverse focussing and a vertical dipole combiner.
The RLAs consist of single SC RF cavity cells and FODO quadrupole focussing throughout.
Conceptual design advanced.
Engineering being started.
But, no such machine ever built.
But: >5* more ions – difficult to accelerate 8B looks very difficult 18Ne looks possible, though experiment required
Work continues to optimise ion production rate
iron (3 cm)

IDS-NF baseline for 25 GeV NuFact: MIND
MEMPHYS: 3x65mx60m water Cherenkov modules (400 kton fiducial) but could be expanded to 3x65mx80m (572 kton)
