Abstract: DJ.00004 : Upgrade scheme of upstream optics for neutron lifetime measurement at J-PARC*
9:45 AM–10:00 AM
J-PARC Neutron lifetime collaboration
Because SFC couldn't transport enough amount of neutron beam, the experimental sensitivity is limited by the statistic uncertainty. To improve it, we are planning the upgrade of the SFC.
We simulated the neutron transport system. From simulation results, we can get about 10 times neutron flux by upgrading SFC. We will present details of simulation results and future plan.
