Title: Future Muon Colliders, Higgs and Neutrino Factories

Abstract

Over the past two decades there has been significant progress in developing the concepts and technologies needed to produce, capture, accelerate and collide high intensity beams of muons. At present, a high-luminosity multi-TeV muon collider presents an attractive and very cost-effective option for the next generation lepton-lepton collider, which can allow to fully explore the energy frontier of high energy particle physics in the era following the LHC discoveries. Of growing interest is also a low-energy μ+μ- collider – Higgs factory - at the center of mass energy $$\sqrt{s}$$=125 GeV that will produce copious number of Higgs particles and explore their properties in greater detail. Synergetic to the collider is the neutrino factory concept that is based on racetrack type muon-decay ring production of the neutrinos. Below we briefly review the concepts and feasibility of the muon accelerator facilities for particle physics research, discuss the status of the corresponding accelerator R&D, and outline directions of the future work.
