This work introduces an experimental test of the new proposal for a low-emittance muon accelerator (LEMMA). A low-emittance muon beam is obtained from the e+e- → μ+μ- annihilation process at the threshold energy of 45 GeV eliminating the need for a dedicated muon cooling system. A series of two testbeam campaigns were carried out at CERN to validate this concept. The experimental setup is presented together with first preliminary results from the obtained data.

Abstract

This work introduces an experimental test of the new proposal for a low-emittance muon accelerator (LEMMA). A low-emittance muon beam is obtained from the e+e- → μ+μ- annihilation process at the threshold energy of 45 GeV eliminating the need for a dedicated muon cooling system. A series of two testbeam campaigns were carried out at CERN to validate this concept. The experimental setup is presented together with first preliminary results from the obtained data.
