Accelerator R&D towards eRHIC

Yue Hao, C-AD

For the eRHIC Team

Erhic linac ring eic

eRHIC, linac-ring EIC

  • Linac=ERL, or the luminosity is negligible

  • The first proposed linac-ring collider

    • 250GeV (p) *15.9 (e) @1.5e33 cm-2 s-1

  • Why linac-ring

    • Luminosity, remove the limitation of b-b parameter of e-beam

    • High spin polarization (e-beam)

    • Easy to upgrade

    • Easier synchronization with various ion energy.

Beam synchronization detail

Beam Synchronization, Detail

  • Ion at sub-TeV energies is not ultra-relativistic,Change inenergyvelocityfrequency

  • Linac-ring scheme enable a trick to adjust the frequency of RF to sychronize electron and ion at discrete ion energies

  • Reduces the need of path lengthening.

  • Ring-ring scheme can not take the trick.

Erhic r d efforts

eRHIC R&D efforts

  • IR design, crab cavity and dynamic aperture

  • Beam cooling – major R&D efforts, high priority R&D

  • Polarization and Polarimetry (including electron polarimetry)

  • Polarized 3He production and acceleration

  • Polarized electron source

  • Superconducting RF system

  • Multipass ERL and related beam dynamics

  • FFAG energy recovery pass

  • Linac-ring beam-beam interaction

  • ......

Two alternative magnets




Accelerator r d towards erhic

  • Bunch-by-Bunch BPM

  • With fewer BPMs than magnets, the space between some FFAG magnets could be used entirely by a BPM; this design produces “stretched” output pulses (from 13 ps rms bunches) intrinsically in the BPM in-vacuum hardware

  • long sampling platforms

  • 1.0 ns

  • 1.18 ns = ½ 422 MHz rf wavelength

  • = minimum FFAG bunch spacing

  • signal processing: use pair of 2 GSPS ADCs

  • triggered ~ 200 ps apart

Multi pass ffag prototype

Multi-pass FFAG Prototype

  • There is on-going plan to build a multi-pass FFAG Energy Recovery Linac prototype to prove the principle and the method of detecting and correcting the beam.

    • Energy of linac ~100MeV

    • # of passes: ~4

Ir design

Forward detector components

SC magnets




Ir and da

IR and DA

  • 10 mrad crossing angle and crab-crossing

  • 90 degree lattice and beta-beat in adjacent arcs (ATS) to reach beta* of 5 cm

  • Combined function triplet with large aperture for forward collision products and with field-free passage for electron beam

  • Only soft bends of electron beam within 60 m upstream of IP

Beam cooling cec pop

Beam cooling, CEC PoP

  • Traditional stochastic cooling does not have enough bandwidth to cool intense proton beams (~ 3×1011/nsec). Efficiency of traditional electron cooling falls as a high power of hadron’s energy. Coherent Electron Cooling has a potential for high intensity beams including heavy ions.

  • Research Goals:

    • Develop complete package of computer simulation tools for the coherent electron cooling

    • Demonstrate cooling of the ion beam

    • Validate developed model

    • Develop experimental experience with CeC system

Polarized e source

Polarized e-source

  • We are aiming at a high-current (50 mA), high-polarization electron gun for eRHIC.

  • The principle we are aiming to prove is funneling multiple independent beams from 20 cathodes.

  • External review was carried out in 2012.

  • Next week, first HV conditioning and possibly first beam!

5 cell srf cavity

5-cell SRF cavity

HOM high-pass filter

  • eRHIC will utilize five-cell 422 MHz cavities, scaled versions of the BNL3 704 MHz cavity developed for high current linac applications.

  • Stability considerations require cavities with highly damped HOMs.

  • The HOM power is estimated at 12 kW per cavity at a beam current of 50 mA and 12 ERL passes.

  • Apply funding to build prototype.

  • There are many on-going simulation and experiment aiming on the challenge port of eRHIC.

  • The design now is based on extensive simulations.

  • R&D experiments are on-going, need few years to finish.
