Absorber Tests @ FNAL – MuCool
RF-Cavity & Coupling Coil – MuCool
RF Power Source Design
Safety Review - Responses
Cryo cooler implementation
– Sign off on this?
• Work in MICE hall – Completed plan
• WBS – Schedule & Costs
– Involves few people – but needs review…
Technical ISSUES for Now
• Cryo coolers
– Appropriate for MICE?
– Appropriate for a NF
– Consequence to use of Liquid Helium
• Shielding Downstream of MICE
– Larger gap; reduced forces; bigger detectors
– Can we sign off on this?
• Shielding of MICE tracker
– Positive moves – benefits to optics, coupling
& forces (although forces are larger)
Technical ISSUES for Next CM
• Layout in hall
– Alignment & Fixation – compatible with…
• Force Distribution & Control
• Staging of MICE
• Opened up the understanding of the optics
– Does MICE do what we want?
• proposal;
• MICE notes 49, 83…
ISIS Schedule
• Significant issue since March has been a
change in the ISIS shutdown schedule
• ISIS normal “long” shutdown is a few
weeks
• 6 month shutdown in ’04 current
– 300mAmp upgrade
– Installation of ISIS RFQ
• Next long shutdown moved into ’06
– Beam line to TSII
• Mid 2005 -
2004 Shutdown

Factors not yet
Known/applied
Cost Estimates
• From WBS in round numbers
£2.3M
£3.2
£5.0
£6.5
£7.3
£9.6
£11…
“with additional costs ~£24M ”
NOTES
• WBS
– At some point will need to be reviewed
– At that time, we will need to look at the provenance of
the information & the assumptions behind the
contingency
• TRD
– Available on web since CM8
– Not polished to the point of publication but is as
complete as can be; useful reference;
– Review/Revise for October CM10
• GW2 in mind - INFN… - NSF&DOE
And Finally
• Cryo coolers
• Shielding Downstream of MICE
• Shielding of MICE tracker
• MICE Beam Optics
• Force Distribution
