The beta-beam concept relies on the production, by beta decay of radioactive ions of a very high flux, of an electron neutrino and anti-neutrino beam towards a distant detector. After production and acceleration in an accelerator complex consisting of a rapid cycling synchrotron, the CERN PS and the CERN SPS, the radioactive isotopes are injected into a long racetrack-shaped ring, called the decay ...

The Non Scaling FFAG is the main candidate for the final stage of muon acceleration in the Neutrino Factory according to the IDS-NF baseline. The alternative design for the muon acceleration based on two Non-Scaling FFAGs is studied. The staging of the Non-Scaling FFAGs requires lattices with careful chromaticity correction in order to suppress the longitudinal blow up of the beam simultaneously k ... More

Twenty GeV Neutrino crossing along the Earth by longest base line (CERN-Deep Core or FNL-Deep Core) offer the most powerful tool to test neutrino (muon-tau) mixing masses and angles. An Opera-like experiment at 1% size and flux may lead to a few hundreds events a year of tau appearance or and muon suppression or disappearence. The large (11000 km) distance neutrino flux dilution is widely overcome ... More

I argue that LHC may shed light on the nature of neutrino mass through the probe of the seesaw mechanism. The smoking gun signature is lepton number violation through the production of same sign lepton pairs, a collider analogy of the neutrinoless double beta decay. I discuss this in the context of L-R symmetric theories, which predicted neutrino mass long before experiment and led to the seesaw ... More

A new experiment to measure hyperfine transitions in the ground state of muonium, called HFS experiment, is proposed as one of the future J-PARC project. The objective is to measure the value of the ground state hyperfine structure interval of muonium down to the level of a few ppb, and also determine the ratio of muon and proton magnetic moment with 10 ppb. For this measurement, a magnetic f ... More

Granular solid targets made of either fluidised tungsten powder or static pebble bed of tungsten spheres, have been long proposed and are being studied as an alternative configuration towards high-power (>1 MW of beam power) target systems, suitable for a future Super Beam or Neutrino Factory. Such assemblies offer many advantages as better thermal and inertial stress absorption, thermal cooling a ... More
The MuSIC (Muon Science Innovative Channel) beam line at RCNP (Research Centre for Nuclear Physics, Osaka) will be the most intense source of muons in the world. A proton beam is incident on a target and, by using a novel capture solenoid, guides the produced pions into the beam line where they subsequently decay to muons. This increased muon flux will allow more precise measurements of cLFV (char ... More

We consider a model where sterile neutrinos can propagate in a large compactified extra dimension giving rise to Kaluza-Klein (KK) modes and the Standard Model left-handed neutrinos are confined to a 4-dimensional spacetime brane. The KK modes mix with the standard neutrinos modifying their oscillation pattern. To set limits on and estimate sensitivities to the size of the largest extra dimension ... More

Concretely, we discuss the prospects to produce and detect the right-handed neutrinos at colliders in view of the present constraints from electroweak precision observables and rare muon decays. We find that the most promising experiments to observe the firs ... More

The target station of the neutrino factory is designed to optimize the hadron capture and produce an intense muon beam as input to the front-end. The capture section consists of a series of solenoids that produce, in the present baseline, a tapered magnetic field to focus the charged hadrons produced at the target. The effect on the focusing by changing the geometry of the solenoids and the magnet ... More

We consider the ability of T2K and NOvA experiments to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy in light of the recent T2K results. Given the relatively high lower limit sin**2(2*theta13) > 0.03 set by T2K, it is worth exploring this problem. The numu ---> nue oscillation probability depends on the three (until now) unknown parameters theta13, deltaCP and neutrino mass hierarchy. Now that we h ... More

In this talk, I will discuss the baseline and energy optimization of the Neutrino Factory including the latest simulation results on the magnetized iron detector (MIND).

The Low-Energy Neutrino Factory (LENF) is a single-baseline neutrino factory operating with typical stored-muon energies less than 10 GeV.

Preliminary studies of the LENF have shown that ... More

In neutral current (NC) neutrino scattering off nucleus, protons and neutrons contribute almost equally to the cross section (44 and 56%, respectively). To detect the NC interactions one observes the knockout protons or the secondary interactions of neutrons. However, the gamma-rays, produced in de-excitation of residual nucleus, may provide an additional signal for detection of neutral-current ev ... More

The presentation will summarize the beam controls necessary to efine the flux in the neturino factory with a precision of 10-3. A polarimeter, a beam divergence measurement and a beam current measurement will do the job

Anomalous deviation of the amu factor observed by the muon g-2 experiment is significant, and should be confirmed as soon as possible. This factor is experimentally determined by frequency difference observed by the g-2 and muon magnetic moment observed by the muonium hyperfine splitting (MuHFS). Both two experiments are planned to be performed at the H-line of the J-PARC/MUSE which is under ... More

We are planning an experiment to measure hyperfine splitting frequency of the ground state of muonium atom at J-PARC MLF. Compared to the previous experiment carried out at LAMPF, the proposed experiment will benefit from the high intensity of the muon beam available at J-PARC MLF, and smaller correction due to gas pressure shift thanks to the usage of longer RF cavity, where muonium are formed an ...

The TWIST (TRIUMF Weak Interaction Symmetry Test) has completed a measurement of the muon decay energy-angle spectrum with the best precision in the world [1]. This experiment consists of a simultaneous measurement of the parameters ρ, δ, and Pμξ, from highly polarized muons, to test the validity of the Standard Model (SM) in a purely leptonic interaction. The measurement of these parameters s ... More
