Abstract
The Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) has measured the evolution of emittance due to ionization energy loss. Muons were focused onto an absorber using a large aperture solenoid. Lithium-hydride and liquid hy- drogen-absorbers have been studied. Diagnostic devices were placed upstream and downstream of the focus, ena- bling the phase-space coordinates of individual muons to be reconstructed. By observing the properties of ensem- bles of muons, the change in beam emittance was meas- ured. Data taken during 2016 and 2017 are currently un- der study to evaluate the change in emittance due to the absorber for muon beams with various initial emittance, momenta...
