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 nature's secrets hidden in the properties of the neutrino and deliver collisions in which the energy density is unprecedentedly large, far in excess of those that can be achieved at, for example, the LHC. MICE will deliver the necessary, seminal, demonstration of cooling.
