Motivation

Motivation

  • The idea of using a muon storage ring to produce neutrino beams for experiments is not new

    • 50 GeV beam – Koshkarev @ CERN in 1974

    • 1 GeV – Neuffer in 1980

  • The facility/program I will describe here can:

    • Address the large Dm2oscillation regime and make a major contribution to the study of sterile neutrinos

      • Either allow for precision study, if they exist in this regime

      • Or greatly expand the dis-allowed region

    • Make precision neand ne-bar cross-section measurements

    • Provide a technology test demonstration ( m decay ring) and mbeam diagnostics test bed

    • Provide a precisely understood nbeam for detector studies

Alan Bross Fermilab Physics Advisory Committee June 21, 2012


Short baseline n oscillation studies

Short-baseline n oscillation studies

  • Sterile neutrinos arise naturally in many extensions of the Standard Model.

    • GUT models

    • Cosmological models of evolution of early universe

    • “Dark” sector

  • Experimental hints

    • LSND

    • MiniBooNE

    • Reactor “anomaly”

But:

  • Need self-consistent two-detector simulation including (bin-to-bin) uncorrelated shape error ~ 10%

  • Achallenge: there may be oscillations already in near detectors

    • Geometry important for Dm2 ~ 101 – 103 eV2

  • Suitability (& optimization) of SuperBIND for ne channels still needs to be studied

Impact statements

Impact Statements

  • PPD

    • It is understood that LBNE may not proceed with near detector hall in Phase I. However, we believe that regardless of the final decision regarding the ND in LBNE Phase I, studies/simulation will occur and they will be synergistic with the needs of nSTORM

  • AD

    • We agree that AP0 is not appropriate and this option is dropped. I will address the siting plan next.

Alan Bross Fermilab Physics Advisory Committee June 21, 2012


Siting

Siting

  • The favored concept is to follow the plan that was developed for the NuMI Project (no not that one) – SBL MI-40, short BL nt(1994).

  • Utilize MI abort line

Moving forward

Moving Forward


Neutrinos from stored muons n storm

Moving forward:

  • Facility

    • Targeting, capture/transport & Injection

      • Need to complete detailed design and simulation

    • Decay Ring optimization

      • Continued study of both RFFAG & FODO decay rings

    • Decay Ring Instrumentation

      • Define and simulate performance of BCT, polarimeter, Magnetic-spectrometer, etc.

    • Produce full G4Beamline simulation of all of the above to define n flux

      • And verify the precision to which it can be determined.

Alan Bross Fermilab Physics Advisory Committee June 21, 2012


Neutrinos from stored muons n storm

Moving forward:

  • Detector simulation

    • For oscillation studies, continue MC study of backgrounds & systematics

      • Start study of disappearance channels

    • In particular the event classification in the reconstruction needs optimization.

      • Currently assumes "longest track" is interaction muon.

      • Plan to assign hits to and fit multiple tracks.

      • Vertex definition must also be improved.

      • Multivariate analysis.

    • For cross-section measurements need detector baseline design

      • Learn much from detector work for LBNE & IDS-NF

        • Increased emphasis on ne interactions, however

  • Produce Full Proposal

N storm conclusions

nSTORM: Conclusions

The Physics case:

  • Initial simulation work indicates that a L/E » 1 oscillation experiment using a muon storage ring can confirm/exclude at 10s(CPT invariant channel) the LSND/MiniBooNE result

  • nmand (ne ) disappearance experiments delivering at the <1% level look to be doable

    • Systematics need careful analysis

    • Detailed simulation work on these channels has not yet started

      • Detector implications?

  • Cross section measurements with near detector(s) offer a unique opportunity

    The Facility:

  • Presents very manageable extrapolations from existing technology

    • But can explore new ideas regarding beam optics and instrumentation

  • Offers opportunities for extensions

    • Add RF for bunching/acceleration/phase space manipulation

      • Provide m source for 6D cooling experiment with intense pulsed beam

Alan Bross Fermilab Physics Advisory Committee June 21, 2012


N storm conclusions ii

nSTORM: Conclusions II

The Detector:

  • Is based on demonstrated technology and follows engineering principles from existing detectors

    • Technology extrapolations (scintillator readout) are perfectly aligned with development work within Fermilab’s existing program (m2e)

    • Magnetization is based on technology that was fully vetted over 10 years ago

      • But has been in a dormant state

        nSTORM:

  • Delivers on the physics for the study of sterile n

    • Offering a new approach to the production of n beams setting a 10 s benchmark to confirm/exclude LSND/MiniBooNE

  • Can add significantly to our knowledge of n cross-sections, particularly for ne interactions

  • Provides an accelerator technology test bed

  • Provides a powerful n detector test facility

Alan Bross Fermilab Physics Advisory Committee June 21, 2012


N storm sterile n

nSTORM : Sterile n

Of the 30+ concepts that have recently been discussed in the literature to search for/study sterile neutrinos, nSTORM is the only one that can do all of the following:

  • Make a direct test of the LSND and MiniBooNE anomalies.

  • Provide stringent constraints for both neand nmdisappearance to over constrain 3+N oscillation models and to test the Gallium and reactor anomalies directly.

  • Test the CP- and T-conjugated channels as well, in order to obtain the relevant clues for the underlying physics model, such as CP violation in 3 + 2 models.
