Design Study for the LHeC — Helmut Burkhardt1, •Miriam Fitterer1,2, and Anke-Susanne Müller2 — 1CERN, Geneva, Switzerland — 2KIT, Karlsruhe, Germany
The Large Hadron Electron Collider (LHeC) study aims at lepton-proton collision with center of mass energies in the TeV range and a luminosity of around 1033 cm−2s−1. In order to achieve this, the existing 7 TeV LHC proton beam has to collide with a 50 to 140 GeV electron beam. Presently two options are considered as electron accelerator: the so called “linac-ring“ and ”ring-ring“ option. Both options provide the possibility to operate in parallel with proton-proton or ion-ion collisions and imply either the construction of a linear accelerator respectively energy recovery linac or the installation of an additional electron storage ring in the existing LHC tunnel. In this paper we give an overview of the LHeC ring-ring option with emphasis on the design and beam dynamics of the electron storage ring.
