First Muon RF Acceleration for the Muon g-2 Experiment at J-PARC
August 02, 2019
Muons have been accelerated by using a radio frequency accelerator for the first time. Negative muonium atoms (Mu$^-$), which are bound states of positive muons ($\mu^+$) and two electrons, are generated from $\mu^+$'s through the electron capture process in an aluminum degrader. The generated Mu$^-$'s are initially electrostatically accelerated and injected into a radio frequency quadrupole linac (RFQ). In the RFQ, the Mu$^-$'s are accelerated to 89~keV. The accelerated Mu$^-$'s are identified by momentum measurement and time of flight. This first muon acceleration is one of big milestones for realizing new muon g-2 experiment at J-PARC.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
