ePIC Detector design philosophy

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


Bernd Surrow (Temple University)


Understanding the properties of nuclear matter and its emergence through the underlying partonic structure and dynamics of quarks and gluons requires a new experimental facility in hadronic physics known as the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC).
The EIC will address some of the most profound questions concerning the emergence of nuclear properties by precisely imaging gluons and quarks inside protons
and nuclei, such as the distribution of gluons and quarks in space and momentum, their role in building the nucleon spin and the properties of gluons in nuclei at
high energies.
A new detector collaboration has been formed around one of two possible interaction regions, the ePIC collaboration. This presentation will present the requirements for the ePIC detector, present in detail its design philosophy, and discuss the overall status and plans.
