Detector designs for eRHIC

Renee Fatemi, Bernd Surrow

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


An electron-proton/ion collider facility (eRHIC) is under consideration at Brookhaven National Laboratory. This high energy, high intensity polarized electron/positron beam facility is designed to provide collisions with the existing RHIC heavy ion and polarized proton beams. This upgraded facility will require the design and construction of detectors, optimized for the reconstruction of the underlying e-p/ion event kinematics and tailored to the constraints of the interaction region. Two independent and complimentary detector designs have been discussed by the MIT and MPI-Munich groups respectively. Design details, simulation results and primary physics goals will be discussed for each proposal.
