Advances in nuclear physics depend on experiments that employ relativistic hadron accelerators with dramatically increased luminosity. Current methods of increasing hadron beam luminosity include stochastic cooling and electron cooling; however, these approaches face serious difficulties at the high intensities and high energies proposed for eRHIC *. Coherent electron cooling promises to cool hadron beams at a much faster rate**. A single pass of an ion through a coherent electron cooler involves the ion's modulating the charge density of a copropagating electron beam, amplification of the modulated electron beam in a free-electron laser, and energy correction of the ion in the kicker section. Numerical simulations of these three components are underway, using the parallel Vorpal framework and Genesis 1.3, with careful coupling between the two codes. Here we present validations of two components of the simulations: Adding bunching to an electron beam at the start of an FEL, and the time-dependent charge density modulation in the kicker.

  We conduct proof-of-the-principle experiment of coherent electron cooling (CEC), which has a potential to significantly boost luminosity of high-energy, high-intensity hadron colliders. In this paper, we present the progress with experimental equipment including the first tests of the electron gun and the magnetic measurements of the wiggler prototype. We describe current design status as well as near future plans.

In the 2012 RHIC heavy ion run, we collided 96.4~GeV U-U ions and 100~GeV Cu-Au ions for the first time in RHIC. The new pre-injector with the electron-beam ion source (EBIS) was used to provide ions for RHIC ion collisions for the first time. By adding the horizontal cooling, the powerful 3-D stochastic cooling largely enhanced the luminosity. With the double bunch merging in the Booster and AGS, the bunch intensities of Cu and Au ions in RHIC surpassed their projections. Both PHENIX and STAR detectors reached their integrated luminosity goals for the U-U and Cu-Au collisions. In this article we review the machine improvement and performance in this run.
