The EIC Accelerator - Design Highlights and Project Status

Talk in workshop 1 "QCD at the EIC: Experimental Opportunities and Detector Challenges" Parallel workshop 1


Christoph Montag (BNL)


The design of the electron-ion collider (EIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory
is well underway, aiming at a peak electron-proton luminosity of 10^34 cm^-2
sec^-1. This high luminosity and wide center-of-mass energy range from 29 to
141 GeV (e-p) require innovative solutions to maximize the performance of the
machine, which makes the EIC one of the most challenging accelerator projects
to date. The complexity of the EIC will be discussed, and the project status
and plans will be presented.
