  The PRISM Task Force continues to study high intensity and high quality muon beams needed for next generation lepton flavor violation experiments. In the PRISM case such beams have been proposed to be produced by sending a short proton pulse to a pion production target, capturing the pions and performing RF phase rotation on the resulting muon beam in an FFAG ring. This paper summarizes the current status of the PRISM design obtained by the Task Force. In particular various designs for the PRISM FFAG ring are discussed and their performance compared to the baseline one, the injection/extraction systems and matching to the solenoid channels upstream and downstream of the FFAG ring are presented. The feasibility of the construction of the PRISM system is discussed.

  Superconducting magnets for high intensity accelerators and particle sources are exposed to severe radiation from beam collisions and other beam losses. Neutron fluence on the superconducting magnets for the next generation projects of high energy particle physics, such as LHC upgrades and the COMET experiment at J-PARC, is expected to exceed 1021 n/m2, which is close to the requirements on the fusion reactor magnets. Irradiation effects at low temperature in superconducting magnet materials should be reviewed to estimate the stability of the superconducting magnet system in operation and its life. The pion capture superconducting solenoids for the COMET experiment are designed with aluminum stabilized superconducting cable to reduce the nuclear heating by neutrons. Also, the heat is designed to be transferred in pure aluminum strips. Irradiation effects on the electrical conductance of aluminum stabilizer and other materials are tested at cryogenic temperature using the reactor neutrons. This paper describes the study on the irradiation effects for the magnet developments.
