Electron Cooling Possibilities for Hera


Electron Cooling of the hadron beam in HERA could be a way to upgrade the luminosity for electron-proton and electron-heavy ion collisions. Because of the necessary electron energy of 450 MeV for cooling protons and about 180 MeV for cooling heavy ions the conventional approach using electrostatic DC sources is not possible. Instead an electron storage ring… (More)
