Usage


In science:

For each baseline, a total of 2.5 · 1021 useful muon decays plus 2.5 · 1021 useful antimuon decays in the straight of the corresponding storage ring is used, which could be achieved by ten years of operation with 2.5 · 1020 useful muon decays per baseline, year, and polarity.
Neutrino factory optimization for non-standard interactions
These muons/antimuons therefore pass undetected and eventually decay into electrons/positrons which are observed by the detector.
Effect of Collective Flavor Oscillations on the Diffuse Supernova Neutrino Background
The same applies for the electron neutrinos around each antimuon neutrino, which are the centers of the cells of a µ+ meson lattice.
The spin of the mu-mesons
These type of detectors offer the possibility of magnetization, thus making it possible to distinguish between muon and antimuon events, which enhances the sensitivity. (iii) Liquid Argon Time Pro jection Chamber (LArTPC): Examples of such detectors are ICARUS and ArgoNeuT [26, 27].
