Slow μ+ and μ- Beam Production and the Next Generation of Muon Science

  • K. Nagamine
Part of the Springer Proceedings in Physics book series (SPPHY, volume 59)


New techniques of intense keV beam production for both positive and negative muons are now under development at UT-MSL based upon the idea of re-emission of the muons from the surface of the stopping material. Descriptions are given on the principle, status of facility construction, future development and new possible muon science research with these slow muons.
