MICE Simulation Data

2018-03-20T10:26:57Z (GMT) by The MICE Collaboration

MICE, the international Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment, is a project to design, construct, operate and test a cell of a muon ionisation cooling channel that may be used for a future Muon Collider or Neutrino Factory.

The object of the MICE experiment is to take a beam of muons created from protons from the ISIS accelerator hitting a titanium target and to show that it is possible to create a narrow intense beam, using detector techniques from particle physics.

Simulation of MICE is done in two steps: G4beamline is used to simulate the scattering from the Target and to propagate the resulting "Muon Beams" to a hand-over point just past the second momentum-selection dipole; and the separate "MC Production" process then uses MAUS to track the particles onwards through the Cooling Channel for a variety of beam settings and conditions.

The simulation outputs are provided as tarballed ROOT files.

Tarballs of the Simulation data output from MICE are available from:

The MICE data and re-use policy is described in MICE Note 396:
