Description

The International Design Study for the Neutrino Factory (the IDS-NF) has been established by the Neutrino Factory community to deliver the Reference Design Report (RDR) for the facility by the 2012/13 decision point identified by the Strategy Session of CERN Council. The baseline design for the facility will provide 10^21 muon decays per year from 25 GeV stored muon beams. The facility will serve two neutrino detectors; one situated at source-detector distance of between 3000—5000 km, the second at 7000—8000 km. The discovery reach of the Neutrino Factory will be presented and compared with alternative techniques (beta-beam and super-beam). The motivation for measurements of the neutrino-mixing parameters with a precision approaching that with which the quark-mixing parameters are known will be reviewed briefly. Finally, the organisation of the IDS-NF and its relation to the EUROnu Design Study will be described.
