The future electron-ion collider will open exciting new frontiers for research in nuclear physics and QCD. The US nuclear physics community, with world-wide support, has compiled a comprehensive white paper that provides a detailed description of the potential of such a machine and the associated design requirements. Brookhaven National Laboratory is proposing eRHIC, an electron-ion...

A U.S.-based Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) has recently been endorsed by the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NAS). This brings the realization of such a collider another step closer, after its earlier recommendation in the 2015 Long-Range Plan for U.S. nuclear science of the Nuclear Science Advisory Committee ``as the highest priority for new facility...
115. Interaction Region Design Considerations and the Machine Detector Interface for Electron Ion Colliders
Dr Brett Parker (BNL)
Melding the physics goals of an EIC with the practicalities of accelerator and magnet design leads to many IR design challenges. Simply bringing beams with quite different properties cleanly into collision with high luminosity and without placing intrusive machine elements inside the detector volume is a first major challenge. In addition, EIC physics requires polarized beams, high field...

The Electron Ion Collider (EIC), which will be built in the US during next decade, is proposed as a facility to probe the fundamental structure of matter trough lepton scattering off nucleon and nuclei with unprecedented luminosity. The broad EIC physics program spans from the nucleon tomography to the hadronization in dense nuclear matter. In this talk I'll discuss the opportunity for a...

Transverse momentum dependent (TMD) distributions are a novel QCD tool that allow the mapping of the motion of quarks and gluons in nuclear matter. The Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) will allow for a high-precision study of TMDs at the scale of sea quarks and gluons. In my presentation, I will discuss the requirements on theory as well as on accelerator, detector, and computer technology for the...
Dr Salvatore Fazio (Brookhaven National Laboratory)
The 2015 U.S. Nuclear Physics Long-Range Plan recommended the realization of an electron-ion collider (EIC) as the next large construction project in the United States. A U.S.-based EIC has also recently been endorsed by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. With the design of an EIC, advancements in theory and further development of phenomenological tools, we are now preparing for the...

The power-law growth of gluon and sea quark PDFs that has been experimentally observed in the small-x regime is fundamentally inconsistent with basic tenets of quantum field theory. This phenomenon is driven by the explosive rate of soft gluon bremsstrahlung which is a fundamental feature of QCD (or any non-Abelian field theory). In order to be consistent with essential features such as...

Production of heavy quarkonium provides a unique probe to the gluonic structure of the nucleon. A new generation of experiments at Jefferson Lab in the 12 GeV era will use near-threshold J/ψ production to study topics related to the dynamic origin of nucleon mass, the nature of the color Van der Waals force, and the existence of the LHCb charmed pentaquark. These topics can also be studied at...
