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.

  At Fermilab, we are developing NuSTORM (Neutrinos from STORed Muons), a neutrino beam from muon decay in a long straight section of a storage ring. The baseline design for NuSTORM uses what was called “stochastic injection”. In that method, high-energy protons on a nuclear target produce pions that are directed by a chicane into a straight section of the storage ring. Pions that decay within that straight section can provide lower-energy muons that are within the circulating acceptance of the storage ring. This decay acceptance enables injection for multiple storage ring turns without kickers, and muon accumulation can be reasonably high. The design of a muon storage ring with pion injection is described and simulations of acceptance are discussed. Alternative injection approaches are also discussed.
