The Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) at RAL has studied the ionization cooling of muons. Several million individual particle tracks have been recorded passing through a series of focusing magnets in a number of different configurations and a liquid hydrogen or lithium hydride absorber. Measurement of the tracks upstream and downstream of the absorber has shown the expected effects of the 4D emittance reduction. This invited talk presents and discusses these results, and projects the future of ionization cooling.
Abstract submitted by the speakers bureau of the MICE Collaboration. If accepted, a member of the collaboration will be selected to present the contribution

Laser and THz Driven Deflection and Acceleration of Electron Beams

  Dielectric laser accelerators have shown very high accelerating gradients but the phase space that can be captured is very small due to the short wavelength. Moving to THz frequencies could potentially allow larger bunches to be captured and accelerated. Here the THz is generated via Cherenkov radiation in a non-linear dielectric from a laser pulse. Two schemes are proposed either by accelerating in a dielectric waveguide or by creating a travelling focus in the THz allowing direct acceleration.
