Comparison of the sizes of various futuristic hadron-hadron
and lepton-antilepton colliders. Shown are footprints for
the First Muon Collider (FMC), Next Muon Collider (NMC),
Next Linear Collider (NLC), and Very Large Hadron Collider
(VLHC). These are compared with the footprint of the LHC
at CERN, and the size of an existing laboratory site (Fermilab).
Schematic of the accelerator complex needed to produce,
cool, and accelerate muons for a high energy muon collider.
Schematic illustrating ionization cooling.
Muons pass through absorbers (labelled dE/dx) in which
they loose momentum by ionization losses. The longitudinal
component of the momentum is replaced by rf cavities
providing acceleration in the direction of the arrows.
