Neutrino Factories are facilities that produce neutrino beams with well-defined flavour content and energy spectra, from the decay of intense, high-energy, stored muons, to search for CP violation in the neutrino sector. The International Design Study for the Neutrino Factory (the IDS-NF) is providing a Reference Design Report (RDR) for such facilities, optimised for the high values of θ13. The accelerator facility will deliver 1021 muon decays per year from 10 GeV stored muon beams. The straight sections of the storage ring point to a 100 kton Magnetised Iron Neutrino Detector (MIND) at a distance of ∼ 2000 km from the source. The accuracy in the value of δCP that a Neutrino Factory can achieve is between 4◦ and 5◦ and the δCP coverage is between 85% and 90%, both of which are unrivalled by other future facilities.
