Description

Muon beams are customarily obtained via $K/\pi$ decays produced in
proton interaction on target.

In this seminar we investigate the possibility to produce low emittance muon beams from electron-positron collisions at centre-of-mass energy just above the µ+µ- production threshold with maximal beam energy asymmetry, corresponding to a positron beam of about 45 GeV interacting on electrons on target. We present the main features of this scheme with an outline of the possible applications for a low emittance muon collider.
