Abstract: Muon storage rings have been proposed for use as a source of high-energyneutrino beams the Neutrino Factory and as the basis for a high-energylepton-antilepton collider the Muon Collider. The Neutrino Factory is widelybelieved to be the machine of choice for the search for leptonic CP violationwhile the Muon Collider may prove to be the most practical route to multi-TeVlepton-antilepton collisions. The baseline conceptual designs for each of thesefacilities requires the phase-space compression cooling of the muon beamsprior to acceleration. The short muon lifetime makes it impossible to employtraditional techniques to cool the beam while maintaining the muon-beamintensity. Ionization cooling, a process in which the muon beam is passedthrough a series of liquid-hydrogen absorbers followed by accelerating RFcavities, is the technique proposed to cool the muon beam. The internationalMuon Ionization Cooling Experiment MICE collaboration will carry out asystematic study of ionization cooling. The MICE experiment, which is underconstruction at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, will begin to take datalate this year. The MICE cooling channel, the instrumentation and theimplementation at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory are described togetherwith the predicted performance of the channel and the measurements that will bemade.
