Synchronizing colliding beams at single or multiple collision points is a critical R&D issue in the design of a medium energy electron-ion collider (MEIC) at Jefferson Lab. The path-length variation due to changes in the ion energy, which varies over 20 to 100 GeV, could be more than several times the bunch spacing. The scheme adopted in the present MEIC baseline is centered on varying the number of bunches (i.e., harmonic number) stored in the collider ring. This could provide a set of discrete energies for proton or ions such that the beam synchronization condition is satisfied. To cover the ion energy between these synchronized values, we further propose to vary simultaneously the electron ring circumference and the frequency of the RF systems in both collider rings. We also present in this paper the requirement of frequency tunability of SRF cavities to support the scheme.

A polarized electron-ion collider is envisioned as the future nuclear science program at JLab beyond the 12 GeV CEBAF. Presently, a medium energy collider (MEIC) is set as an immediate goal with options for a future energy upgrade. A comprehensive design report for MEIC has been released recently. The MEIC facility could also accommodate electron and proton/ion collisions in a low CM energy range, covering proton energies from 10 to 25 GeV and ion energies with a similar magnetic rigidity, for additional science reach. In this paper, we present a conceptual design of this low energy collider, LEIC, showing its luminosity can reach above 1033 cm-2s−1. The design specifies that the large booster of the MEIC is converted to a low energy ion collider ring with an interaction region and an electron cooler integrated into it. The design provides options for either sharing the detector with the MEIC or a dedicated low energy detector in a third collision point, with advantages of either a minimum cost or extra detection parallel to the MEIC operation, respectively. The LEIC could be positioned as the first and low cost phase of a multi-stage approach to realize the full MEIC.

  Considerable progress has been made in developing promising subsystems for muon beam cooling channels to provide the extraordinary reduction of emittance required for an Energy-Frontier Muon Collider, but lacks an end-to-end design. Meanwhile, the recent discovery of a Higgs-like boson has created interest in the High Energy physics community for a Higgs Factory to investigate its properties and verify whether it is Standard Model or beyond. We present principles and tools to match emittances between and within muon beam cooling subsystems that may have different characteristics. The Helical Cooling Channel (HCC), which combines helical dipoles and a solenoid field, allows a general analytic approach to guide designs of transitions from one set of cooling channel parameters to another. These principles and tools will be applied to design a complete cooling channel that would be applicable to a Higgs Factory and an Energy Frontier Muon Collider.
