  Coherent electron cooling (CEC) is considered to be on of potential candidates capable of cooling high-energy, high-intensity hadron beams to very small emittances. It also has a potential to significantly boost luminosity of high-energy hadron-hadron and electron-hadron colliders. In a CEC system, a perturbation of the electron density caused by a hadron is amplified and fed back to the hadrons to reduce the energy spread and the emittance of the beam. Following the funding decision by DoE office of Nuclear Physics, we are designing and building coherent electron cooler for a proof-of-principle experiment at RHIC to cool 40 GeV heavy ion beam. In this paper, we describe the layout of the CeC installed into IP2 interaction region at RHIC. We present the design of the CeC cooler and results of preliminary simulations.
