After ISS

Where Do We Go From Here?

next until the end of 2006
Next - until the end of 2006
  • Produce the ISS Report
    • - with the present team & structure
    • A Good Report is Vital
      • it will provide the basis of bids for R&D funding for the next stage, assuming there is a community to support it
  • Devise a New Effort to carry the Work Forward
    • But what is the best way?

P Dornan - After ISS

the iss report for the neutrino factory
The ISS Report for the Neutrino Factory
  • It must address
    • Ourselves
      • We have to be convinced it is viable and will produce good physics
    • The wider n community
      • Main problem here is probably timescale
    • The wider particle physics community
      • Many in he LHC – ILC communities consider n-oscillation is just a blip on the SM and that ‘serious’ BSM physics will only come from the quark sector
    • The funding agencies
      • Requires pressure from the PP community
    • The Labs
      • n-factory has to be in possible future plans

P Dornan - After ISS

structure for a continuation
Structure for a Continuation
      • Must be established during the fall
    • What form should it take?
    • How to do it?
    • Who can do it?
  • Here are some thoughts
    • From the ISS - PC and the original ‘Wise Men’
    • for discussion this week

P Dornan - After ISS

goal an advanced neutrino facility
Goal - An Advanced Neutrino Facility
    • - for data taking before 2020.
  • To choose
    • The facility to produce the very best physics return
      • But maybe too expensive
    • The facility giving max physics/$
      • Weighting physics return is subjective
    • Need a compromise
    • & probably more information e.g. size of q13
    • So cannot make such a judgment today
      • But equally cannot keep postponing it

P Dornan - After ISS

what would it be
What would it be?
    • Neutrino Factory
    • b-Beam Facility
    • High power Superbeam and very large detector
      • Possibly two of these - but not three
  • Future - how to proceed?
    • Single Study embracing all three?
    • Three independent studies?
      • -assuming all three communities believe it necessary
    • Three quasi-independent studies but with coordination where practicable and an overall oversight body.

P Dornan - After ISS

why an independent n fact study
Why An Independent n-Fact Study?
  • The synergies with the others are not great
  • Accelerator
    • After p-driver and target - little in common
  • Detector
    • For n-fact – high energy n, magnetised
    • For Superbeam - low energy n, non-magnetised, very large
    • For b-beam, non-magntised
  • Physics
    • This is in common, provides the overall motivation and is one of the critical discriminators

the oversight body
The Oversight Body
  • International cooperation for a future advanced neutrino facility has been strongly advocated by
    • EPP2010
    • CERN Council Strategy Document
  • The four ISS ‘Wise Men’, Steve Geer, Yoshi Kuno,Vittorio Palladino, Ken Peach, have drafted a letter to go to all relevant accelerator lab directors asking them to facilitate coordinated R&D in the neutrino area and establish an
  • ‘International Neutrino Facility Oversight Committee’ (INFOC)
    • With copies to spokespeople of all major current neutrino experiments
    • Aim to finalise the draft this week

P Dornan - After ISS

infoc
INFOC
  • Representatives of the Labs
        • And funding agencies?
  • The Individual Neutrino collaborations would report to INFOC
  • Would recommend support, funding, engineering for the projects
  • Monitor Progress
  • It ultimately would decide on the form of the future neutrino facility

P Dornan - After ISS

the neutrino factory collaboration
The Neutrino Factory Collaboration
  • For the Neutrino Factory area there would be an International Neutrino Factory Collaboration (INuFC)
    • Would focus purely on the n-fact approach to a future n-facility
    • It would have a structure similar to the ISS
      • Accelerator group
      • Detector Group
      • Physics Group

P Dornan - After ISS

inufc aim
INuFC - Aim
  • To produce by ~2010 an interim report outlining
    • A n-factory solution for a n-facility which could produce data before 2020
      • Dependent on a successful outcome of R&D underway, e.g. MICE and other R&D following the ISS
      • Dependent on the value of q13
      • Approximate costs
      • Site Considerations
    • Make it possible (with resources) to produce a CDR for a n-fact by ~2012, a TDR by ~2014 and data by 2020

P Dornan - After ISS

ambitious plan
Ambitious Plan
  • But it is necessary - in order to
    • Engage accelerator scientists, engineers, the n-physics community
      • A device for ~2030 has little attraction at the present time
    • Have an international n-factory on the particle physic roadmap
      • And encourage the major labs/regions to include it on their roadmap
      • And for one of them to ‘host’ the effort
    • Ensure adequate (substantial) resources for the CDR

P Dornan - After ISS

inufc questions
INuFC - Questions
  • Structure
    • Like ISS - 3 WG’s and a PC of WG leaders and an overall coordinator?
    • Like a PP experiment - a wide steering group?
    • How are people chosen?
  • Mandate
    • Period of 3 years, 2007 – 2010
    • Indefinite
      • Until n-fact is built or funding ceases
  • These - and many other questions - will need to be established at a meeting around the start of 2007 to coincide with the ISS report

P Dornan - After ISS

inufc needs goals
INuFC - Needs - Goals
  • Get Resources
    • Use ISS report for bids to labs, funding agencies, EU etc.
    • Persuade a lab (or group of labs) to ‘host’ the study and provide some engineering support
    • Embark upon the R&D recommended for by the ISS report
    • Continue the unfinished work of the ISS
    • Convince the wider n-community that this is in the best interests of neutrino physics
  • Get People
    • Need more physicists & engineers for whom this is their major activity
      • Many in the ISS had very limited time
      • Need committed young people.

discussion
Discussion
  • These are all suggestions
  • They need to be discussed
    • Starting now
    • Continuing in the corridors - and again tomorrow afternoon.
  • It is important to have a plan with substantial support from the ISS for the NuFact discussion on the last day.
