Abstract:
This note explores the potential for a low energy muon program based on the 800 MeV PIP-II proton accelerator, which is planned to built at Fermilab within the next decade. There are currently no such facilities in the US, and existing international facilities are badly oversub- scribed. One advantage of the PIP-II linac would be the extremely flexible bunch structure, which could emulate both pulsed machines, like ISIS or JPARC, and CW machines, like PSI or TRIUMF. The total power available would be around 3 kW when emulating ISIS operation, and up to 800 kW in CW mode, making it very competitive with existing facilities of both types.
