Title: Improved Momentum Spread for Precision Physics Experiments Using Wedges

Abstract

High precision experiments have become key in the search for physics beyond the Standard Model. Measurements that can be made in order to expand our knowledge of the Standard Model are the precise measurement of the magnetic dipole moment (MDM) of the muon and searches for a non-zero value of its electric dipole moment (EDM). In order to perform precise measurements of this type, the storage of particles with a precisely known momentum in a highly uniform magnetic field is required. This thesis is focused on how one may use a wedge of energy absorbing material and the optical parameters of an accelerator lattice to improve upon the amount of particles delivered into a storage ring. This thesis will rely on computer simulations to determine ideal optics parameters as well as to study how the beam parameters change as the beam traverses a lattice. As a case study, this thesis will look to the M4 and M5 lines in the Fermilab Muon g-2 experiment, where a wedge of energy absorbing material will be used to reduce the energy spread of a muon beam.
