Abstract:
The MERIT experiment was designed as a proof-of-principle test of a target system based on a free mercury jet inside a 15-T solenoid that is capable of sustaining proton beam powers of up to 4MW. The experiment was run at CERN in the fall of 2007. This talk describes the background of this experiment, the results of the tests and their implications for new facilities including a muon collider.
