Muon Cooling Technology

We offer an alternative energy frontier machine for particle physics…

For well over a decade the High Energy Physics (HEP) community has been asking the question: after the LHC, what is the next facility we should develop? Until recently, the only options being seriously discussed were the ILC (the International Linear Collider), and possibly a larger proton machine. Muons, Inc. was founded in 2002 because we felt that a muon collider could be a viable alternative, but was not being given due consideration; we provided several innovations that sparked renewed interest in new generation accelerator. In the past few years there has been a sea change: presentations by lab directors and funding agencies have begun mentioning a muon collider as a potential new facility, and the Muon Accelerator Program (MAP) has been instituted by Fermilab and funded by the DoE to perform R&D and a feasibility study for a muon collider.
