**Simulated real beam into simulated MICE**Mark Rayner CM26 Simulated real beam into simulated MICE**Introduction**• Various fancy reweighting schemes have been proposed • But how would the raw beam fare in Stage 6? • TOF0 measures px and py at TOF1 given quadrupole field maps • On Wednesday I described the measurement of a 5D covariance matrix (x,px,y,py,pz) • In this talk, compare two monochromatic 6-200 beams in Stage 6 • A matched beam in the tracker • A measured beam at TOF1 • Measured (x, px) and (y, py) covariances • No dispersion Simulated real beam into simulated MICE**Time in MICE**• RF frequency = 200 MHz, period = 5 ns • Neutrino factory beam • Time spread is approximately 500 ps • Want < 50 ps resolution in cavities • Possible methods for tracking time from TOF1 to the upstream tracker • Use of the adiabatic invariant pperp2/Bz0 • The flux enclosed by the orbit of a charged particle in an adiabatically changing magnetic field is constant • Use of the linear transfer matrix for solenoidal fields • Multiply matrices corresponding to slices with varying Bz0 and kappa • Tracking step-wise through a field map • Measured or calculated? • A Kalman filter • Implemented between the trackers • Static fields • None of these methods is particularly difficult • Nevertheless, there is merit in simplicity • This talk will investigate the first approach • Is pperp2/Bz0 really an adiabatic invariant in the MICE Stage 6 fields?
