Abstract

In 1980, the Meson Science Laboratory of the University of Tokyo (UT-MSL) has established a new type of muon experimental facility at National Laboratory for High Energy Physics (KEK)[1]. There, a sharply pulsed muon beam can be used for different types of experiments which are mostly unaccessible for the conventional continuous beam. By utilizing a single bunch extraction of the 500 MeV poton from the booster synchrotron, the instantaneously intense (104 μ/pulse in 5 x 5 cm2) muon beam can be available at the experimental target with a unique time structure of 50 ns pulse width and 50 ms pulse separation (20 Hz). The layout of experimental facility is seen in Fig. 1, where pulsed μ source can be obtained at the superconducting muon channel.
