Generic Detector R&D for an Electron Ion Collider

Contents

Introduction

In January 2011 Brookhaven National Laboratory, in association with Jefferson Lab and the DOE Office of Nuclear Physics, announced a generic detector R&D program to address the scientific requirements for measurements at a future Electron Ion Collider (EIC). The primary goals of this program are to develop detector concepts and technologies that have particular importance for experiments in an EIC environment, and to help ensure that the techniques and resources for implementing these technologies are well established within the EIC user community.

This program is supported through R&D funds provided to BNL by the DOE Office of Nuclear Physics. It is not intended to be specific to any proposed EIC site, and is open to all segments of the EIC community. Proposals should be aimed at optimizing detection capability to enhance the scientific reach of polarized electron-proton and electron-ion collisions up to center-of-mass energies of 50-200 GeV and e-p equivalent luminosities up to a few times 1034 cm-2s-1. Funded proposals will be selected on the basis of peer review by a standing EIC Detector Advisory Committee consisting of internationally recognized experts in detector technology and collider physics. This committee meets approximately twice per year, to hear and evaluate new proposals, and to monitor progress of ongoing projects. The program will be administered by the BNL Physics Department.
This program is funded at an annual level of $1.0M - $1.5M, subject to availability of funds from DOE NP.

Next Meeting

The next meeting of the EIC R&D Detector committee will take place on July 9-10, 2015.
The meeting will focus on discussion of new proposals and the review of ongoing projects.
The call for new proposals can be viewed here (pdf). Instruction for preparing a proposal and/or progress report can be found at the bottom of this page.
