MICE Physics - the emittance of the beam
04 Apr 2017





​Equation for emittance change along path s. The emittance will decrease more for larger <dE/ds>, but will tend to increase for larger (1/Xo). Beta_t is the betatron parameter for the magnetic field at the absorber.


​Emittance is a measure of the divergence of the beam. A reduction in emittance results in a more-parallel beam.
