  • Physics Environment
  • Machine Detector Interface Studies
  • Physics and detector studies
  • Future plans and outlook
muon collider motivation
Muon Collider Motivation
  • Amuon collider is an attractive multi-TeV lepton collider option because muons don’t radiate as readily as electrons (mm / me ~ 207):
  • Compact
    • Fits on laboratory site
  • Multi-pass acceleration
    • Cost effective operation & construction
  • Multipass collisions in a ring (~1000 turns)
    • Relaxed emittance requirements & hence relaxed tolerances

A 4 TeVMuon Collider wouldfit on the Fermilab Site

  • Muons are produced as tertiary particles. To make enough of them we must start with a MW scale proton source & target facility.
  • Muons decay  everything must be done fast and we must deal with the decay electrons.A 1.5 TeVmuon travels 9,300 km in one lifetime (~2000 turns in MuCol ring).
  • Muons are born within a large 6D phase-space. For a MC we must cool them by O(106) before they decay  New cooling techniques (ionization cooling) must be demonstrated, and it requires components with demanding performance (NCRF in magnetic channel, high field solenoids.)
  • After cooling, beams still have relatively large emittance

  • Ring magnet design studies, including radiation& thermal management, progressing. Requires lattice, magnet & MARS simulation expertise Have studied open mid-plane magnet design (radiation & heat loads, field non-uniformity & affect on lattice performance) → looks OK. More engineering studies needed.

physics and detector
Physics and Detector
  • Although there is a revived muon accelerator effort, there has been little corresponding detector effort which could study the large beam-related backgrounds with modern simulation tools and detector technologies
  • Beginning such an effort is crucial to understanding the physics reach of such a device and beginning a program to explore detector development for the muon collider environment.
  • It is also crucial for community buy-in
  • We hope to commission this effort at the Muon Collider 2011 meeting in Telluride next week.

Beamstrahlung in any e+e- collider

E/E  2

  • Narrow beam energy spread
    • Precision scan
    • Kinematic constraints
  • 2 Detectors
  • DTbunch ~ 10 ms
    • Lots of time for readout
    • Backgrounds don’t pile up
  • (mm/me)2 = ~40000
    • Enhanced s-channel rates for Higgs-like particles
  • Multi-TeV lepton collider cross sections dominated by fusion


luminosity goals for high energy muon collider


Luminosity Goals for High Energy MuonCollider
  • L~1034 at 3 TeV provides ~965 events/unit R
    • Much of the yield is in fusion reactions
    • Need to resolve W, Z jets
    • Large missing energies
  • Physics environment similar to CLIC with lower beamstrahlung, higher decay backgrounds, lower polarization and central 10 degrees obscured by “the nose”
it s all about the background
It’s All About the Background

Experiments at the Muon Collider will endure very harsh background environments. The first order of business in evaluating physics capabilities is to understand and simulate the machine backgrounds.

  • IP m+m- collisions – real physics: Production x-section 1.34 pb at √S = 1.5 TeV.
  • IP incoherent e+e- pair production: of 3×104 electron pairs per bunch crossing
  • Muon beam decays: For 0.75-TeV muon beam of 2x1012, 4.28x105dec/m per bunch crossing, or 1.28x1010dec/m/s for 2 beams; 0.5 kW/m.
  • Beam halo: Beam loss at limiting apertures; severe, can be taken care of by an appropriate collimation system far upstream of IP.

  •  Ivan Yakovlevitch… glanced into the roll's middle. To his intensesurprise he saw something glimmering there..   He stuck inhis fingers, and pulled out — a nose! .. .A nose! Sure enough a nose! Yes, and one familiar to him, somehow! Oh, horror spread upon his features! - “The Nose” Gogol (from google)

detector simulation status
Detector Simulation Status
  • A small group from Lecce has been working on Muon Collider simulations in the ILCROOT framework for about a year
    • First studies using full GEANT simulation of a detector with MARS backgrounds imbedded
    • First studies of calorimeter and tracker background with timing cuts
  • A detector simulation using LCSIM (SLAC) has been implemented and first studies are beginning. This is complementary to the ILCROOT studies – the detector is more “generic” and the simulation is more flexible. We have not yet simulated full background events in this framework

Much of these studies were by the Lecce group in collaboration with the FNAL MDI group

collaboration on lepton collider r d
Collaboration on Lepton Collider R&D
  • Laboratory “White Paper” on Lepton Colliders last summer established the goals of future efforts:
    • Establish the requirements of detector systems so the physics can be extracted, taking into account the very different operating conditions at each machine.
    • Provide feedback to the machine design to further optimize the physics potential.
    • Propose necessary detector and other R&D to verify detector technologies.
    • Compare the physics potential of these machines and carry out a cost‐benefit analysis.
    • Coordinate the detector and physics program.
  • First joint effort was to submit a unified proposal to the “Collider Detector R&D” program (program not funded in FY2011)
    • Included support for Muon Collider simulation at FNAL and SLAC
    • Muon Collider detector R&D would come later
  • Summer 2011 – Fall 2011
    • Parameterize backgrounds to enable faster physics simulation
    • Initial physics study including full background simulation
    • Physics studies using parameterized background

Iterate both the shielding and detector designs based on results of simulation studies.

  • 2012-2013 Define detector requirements, and identify needed detector R&D, begin studies to establish a long-term simulation and analysis environment.
  • 2014- 2015 Detector R&D + simulation studies to establish likely detector performance
  • 2015-2017 Define overall detector design, complete studies for the design feasibility report.
muon collider workshop at telluride next week
Muon Collider Workshop at Telluride next week
  • We hope the workshop will provide a venue to introduce the community to the current state of physics and background simulations and serve as an entry point for more extensive university collaboration on Muon Collider Physics
  • We hope to come out of the workshop with a specific set of short and long term goals for physics and detector studies. We aim for demonstration of the physics capability of the machine on the same time scale as the MAP accelerator program goals for accelerator feasibility studies (~FY16)
  • We had hoped to receive some funding for computing support through the KA15 detector R&D program. That has been delayed until next FY.
  • The Lecce (ILCROOT) group has contributed a great deal, but are likely to dissipate without strong FNAL support.
  • Work at NIU and FNAL is beginning using the LCSIM framework provided by SLAC. More work needs to be done to build up momentum for this effort.

We hope to make significant progress at Telluride, but we will need an increased level of support to mount a sustained effort

  • Muon Accelerator Project is up and running – making substantial progress
  • We are beginning a renewed physics and detector program
  • We now have a strong foundation – reliable MARS simulation of backgrounds integrated into GEANT-based detector models.
  • We hope to build on that foundation at Telluride an beyond and provide studies comparable to those undertaken for CLIC and ILC that will provide the HEP community with a basis for informed decisions in the future.
