eRHIC: high energy electron-ion collider


General features

  • Species: electrons colliding with protons, 3He or heavy ions (up to Au).
  • Energy ranges:
    • 5-30 GeV electrons
    • 50-325 GeV polarized protons or up to 130 GeV/u gold ions
  • Luminosities
    •  exceeding 1034 cm-2s-1 for e-p collisions
    •  exceeding 1032 cm-2s-1 for e-Au collisions
  • High polarization of electron, proton  and 3He beams.
  • Electron acceleration in superconducting energy recovery electron linacs.
  • Electron beam is used for collisions only on one pass (linac-ring collision scheme).
  • IR design with 10 mrad crossing angle and crab-crossing.
