MeRHIC - staging approach to eRHIC

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Design of a medium energy electron-ion collider (MeRHIC) is under development at the Collider-Accelerator Department at BNL. The design envisions construction of a 4 GeV electron accelerator in a local area inside and near the RHIC tunnel. Electrons will be produced by a polarized electron source and accelerated in energy recovery linacs. Collisions of the electron beam with 100 GeV/u heavy ions or with 250 GeV polarized protons will be arranged in the existing IP2 interaction region of RHIC. The luminosity of electron-proton collisions at the 10{sup 32} cm{sup -2}s{sup -1} level will be achieved with 50 mA CW electron ... continued below

Description

Design of a medium energy electron-ion collider (MeRHIC) is under development at the Collider-Accelerator Department at BNL. The design envisions construction of a 4 GeV electron accelerator in a local area inside and near the RHIC tunnel. Electrons will be produced by a polarized electron source and accelerated in energy recovery linacs. Collisions of the electron beam with 100 GeV/u heavy ions or with 250 GeV polarized protons will be arranged in the existing IP2 interaction region of RHIC. The luminosity of electron-proton collisions at the 10{sup 32} cm{sup -2}s{sup -1} level will be achieved with 50 mA CW electron current and presently available proton beam parameters. Efficient proton beam cooling at collision energy may bring the luminosity to 10{sup 33} cm{sup -2}s{sup -1}. An important feature of MeRHIC is that it serves as a first stage of eRHIC, a future electron-ion collider at BNL with both higher luminosity and energy reach. The majority of MeRHIC accelerator components will be used in eRHIC.
