Intense muon beams provide a promising solution to a variety of applications ranging from nanotechnology to nuclear detections systems and from medical sciences to high energy physics. Production of such intense beam requires the beam to be cooled and ionization cooling via particle matter interaction is considered one of the most practical methods. Here a theoretical and numerical study on space-charge effects on such ionization cooling channels is presented. We show that space-charge can strongly affect the design of muon cooling systems by limiting their minimum cooling rate. Space-charge compensation solutions are discussed and the minimum cooling emittance as a function of the beam charge and pulse width is identified.
