  The recent discovery of a light Higgs boson has opened up considerable interest in circular e+e Higgs factories around the world. We report on the progress of the “TLEP3” concept since last year. Two options are considered: LEP3, a 240 GeV centre-of-mass (Ecm) e+e machine in the LHC tunnel with cost only a fraction of the cost of an equivalent linear collider, due to the use of existing infrastructure and the two general-purpose LHC detectors, and TLEP, an e+e machine in a new 80 km tunnel that can operate up to an Ecm of 350 GeV. Both concepts enjoy the extensive know-how on circular colliders and how to deliver their design luminosity, and the existence of up to four interaction points. The attainable luminosities are 1034/cm2/s and 5x1034/cm2/s per interaction point for LEP3 and TLEP respectively. Both machines can operate as Tera-Z and Mega-W boson factories, giving decisive opportunities for over-constraining the electroweak sector of the Standard Model. The technical challenges and possible ways to improve the performance further will be discussed.

  In preparation for a future Large Hadron electron Collider (LHeC) at CERN, an ERL test facility is foreseen as a test bed for SRF development, cryogenics, and advanced beam instrumentation, as well as for studies of ERL-specific beam dynamics. The CERN ERL test facility would comprise two linacs, each consisting of 4 superconducting 5-cell cavities at 802 MHz, and two return arcs on either side. With an RF voltage of 75 MeV per linac a final electron energy of about 300 MeV is reached. The average beam current should be above 6 mA to explore the parameter range of the future LHeC. In this paper we present a preliminary optics layout.

The first prototype crab cavity with the 4-rod geometry has undergone surface treatment and cold testing. Due to the complex geometry and unique fabrication procedure, RF validation of the field at beyond the nominal operating voltage at a sufficiently high Q0 is an important pre-requiste. Preliminary results of the first cold tests are presented along with cavity performance at different stages of the cavity processing is described.
WEPWO049 A Proposal for an ERL Test Facility at CERN 2414

  An energy recovery linac at 300-400 MeV is proposed as a test facility using a two-pass two-cryomodule concept as a proof of principle for a future ERL based electron-ion collider. This facility will enable both the development and validation of the required SRF technology performance and ERL specific beam dynamics essential for the future collider. Furthermore, the test facility can be used as the injector to the main linac in future. The test facility proposal, its potential uses and some aspects of the RF system are presented.
