RHIC Electron Cooling Group
Collaboration Workshop on RHIC electron cooling and high-brightness electron beams, May 24-26, 2006, Brookhaven National Laboratory
The meeting is a specific collaboration meeting for two critical issues related to the electron cooling of RHIC; non-magnetized electron cooling of high-energy hadron beams and photoinjector design for the needed high-charge, high-brightness beam. Thus the workshop will comprise of plenary sessions and two working groups. Working Group 1 will deal with theory, simulations and experiments on high-energy, non-magnetized electron beam cooling of hadron storage rings. Working Group 2 will deal with superconducting laser-photocathode RF guns, their beam dynamics and laser shaping for optimizing the brightness of the beam.
The charge for the workshop is summarized in the following:
1. Establish the degree of confidence and accuracy we have in the simulations and theory of non-magnetized electron cooling. Examine the performance of this cooling technique for RHIC and evaluate potential difficulties. Establish a plan for continues R&D.
2. Establish the degree of confidence and accuracy we have in the simulations and theory of the generation of high-charge, low emittance bunches from a superconducting photoinjector. Examine the techniques of laser pulse shaping and their effect on emittance. Establish a plan for continued R&D.
