A facility producing neutrinos from muons that decay in a storage ring can provide an extremely well understood neutrino beam for oscillation physics and the search for sterile neutrinos. The "neutrinos from STORed Muons"(nuSTORM) facility is based on this idea. The facility includes a target station with secondary particle collection, pion transfer line, pion injection, and a ~3.8 GeV/c muon storage ring. No muon cooling or RF sub-systems are required. The injection scenario for nuSTORM avoids the use of a separate pion decay channel and fast kickers. This paper reports a detailed description of the proposed injection scheme with full G4beamline simulations. We also present progresses on possible design options for a muon racetrack decay ring.

Muon accelerator technology offers a unique and very promising avenue to a facility capable of producing high intensity muon beams for neutrino factory and multi-TeV lepton collider applications. The goal of the US Muon Accelerator Program is to provide an assessment, within the next 6 years, of the physics potential and technical feasibility of such a facility. This talk will describe the physics opportunities that are envisioned, along with the R&D efforts that are being undertaken to address key accelerator physics and technology questions.

  Current designs for muon cooling channels require high-gradient RF cavities to be placed in solenoidal magnetic fields in order to contain muons with large transverse emittances. It has been found that doing so reduces the threshold at which RF cavity breakdown occurs. To aid the effort to study RF cavity breakdown in magnetic fields it would be helpful to have a diagnostic tool which can detect breakdown and localize the source of the breakdown inside the cavity. We report here on progress towards developing a diagnostic tool for detecting and localizing sparks in an RF cavity by using piezoelectric transducers.
