To demonstrate that the volume occupied by a muon beam can be reduced (“cooled”) would be to establish the feasibility of muon accelerators for particle physics. Muon accelerators have the potential to unlock the secrets nature has hidden in the properties of the neutrino and deliver to provide the capability to deliver collisions even more energetic than those that can be achieved at the LHC. MICE will deliver the necessary, seminal, demonstration of cooling.
