Title Present Status of Coherent Electron Cooling Proof-of-Principle Experiment
Abstract The Coherent Electron Cooling Proof of Principle (CeC PoP) system is being installed in the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at Brookhaven National Laboratory. It will demonstrate the ability of relativistic electrons to cool a single bunch of heavy ions in RHIC. This technique may increase the beam luminosity by as much as tenfold. Within the scope of this experiment, a 112 MHz 2 MeV Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) electron gun coupled with a cathode stalk mechanism, two normal conducting 500 MHz single-cell bunching cavities, a 704 MHz 20 MeV 5-cell SRF cavity and a helical undulator will be used. In this paper, we provide an overview of the engineering design for this project, test results and discuss project status and plansd.
