Description

The MuCool Test Area (MTA) is used for R&D on ionization cooling components (mostly RF cavities) for the Muon Accelerator Program (MAP). The facility includes an experimental hall with radiation shielding, a surface building housing a liquid helium cryogenic plant and a manifold room for high pressure gas. Research infrastructure in the hall includes 400-MeV high-intensity H- beam from the Fermilab Linac, 201 & 805 MHz RF power, a large-bore solenoid magnet, liquid helium and nitrogen, vacuum system and instrumentation, high pressure gas supply lines, hydrogen safety systems, a class-100 clean room, radiation detectors and optical diagnostics. The available beam rate is 1 pulse per minute. A high-power circulator and switch serve two waveguide branches in the hall for 805-MHz RF.
