In this paper we describe unique features of magnets for R&D ERL, which is under construction in Collider-Accelerator Department, BNL. The R&D ERL serves as a test-bed future BNL ERLs, such as electron-cooler-ERL for RHIC and 20 GeV ERL for future electron-hadron, eRHIC. We present selected designs of various dipole and quadrupole magnets, which are used in Z-bend merging systems and the returning loop, 3-D simulations of the fields in these magnets, particle tracking and analysis of magnet's influence on the beam parameters. We discuss an uncommon method of setting requirements on the quality of magnetic field and transferring them into measurable parameters as well as into manufacturing tolerances. We compare selected simulation with results magnetic measurements.

In this paper we present status and plans for the 20-MeV R&D energy recovery linac, which is under construction at Collider Accelerator Department at BNL. The facility is based on high current (up to 0.5 A of average current) super-conducting 2.5 MeV RF gun, single-mode super-conducting 5-cell RF linac and about 20-m long return loop with very flexible lattice. The R&D ERL, which is planned for commissioning in 2008, aims to address many outstanding questions relevant for high current, high brightness energy-recovery linacs.

We present conceptual design of the NSLS-II injection system. The injection system consists of low-energy linac, booster and transport lines. We review the requirements on the injection system imposed by the storage ring design and means of meeting these requirements. We discuss main parameters and layout of the injection system components.

The physics interest in a luminosity upgrade of RHIC requires the development of a cooling-frontier facility. Detailed cooling calculations have been made to determine the efficacy of electron cooling of the stored RHIC beams. This has been followed by beam dynamics simulations to establish the feasibility of creating the necessary electron beam. Electron cooling of RHIC at collisions requires electron beam energy up to about 54 MeV at an average current of between 50 to 100 mA and a particularly bright electron beam. The accelerator chosen to generate this electron beam is a superconducting Energy Recovery Linac (ERL) with a superconducting RF gun with a laser-photocathode. An intensive experimental R&D program engages the various elements of the accelerator: Photocathodes of novel design, superconducting RF electron gun of a particularly high current and low emittance, a very high-current ERL cavity and a demonstration ERL using these components.

The spin physics program at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) requires knowledge of the proton beam polarization to better than 5%. To achieve this goal, a polarized hydrogen jet target was installed in RHIC where it intersects both beams. The premise is to utilize the precise knowledge of the jet proton polarization to measure the analyzing power in the proton - proton elastic scattering process in the Coulomb Nuclear Interference (CNI) region at the prescribed RHIC proton beam energy, then use the reverse reaction to measure the degree of the beam polarization, and finally confront the results with simultaneous measurements by the fast high statistics polarimeter that measure the p-Carbon elastic scattering process in the CNI region to calibrate the latter. In this presentation, the polarized jet target mechanics, operation, detector systems and the p-Carbon polarimeter are described. The statistical accuracy attained as well as the systematic uncertainties will be discussed. Such techniques may well become the standard for high energy polarized proton beams planned elsewhere in Russia and Japan.
