Welcome to the JLab Electron-Ion Collider Partner Project.

Call for Expressions of Interest for Potential Cooperation on the EIC Experimental Program

The Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (TJNAF), in partnership with Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL), “calls for an Expression of Interest (EOI) for potential cooperation on the experimental equipment as required for a successful science program at the Electron-Ion Collider (EIC). This call emphasizes all detector components to facilitate the full EIC science program including those integrated in the interaction regions.

The Electron-Ion Collider will be a powerful new facility in the United States that is constructed with the aim of studying the particles, gluons, which bind all the observable matter in the world around us. The EIC facility will collide intense beams of spin-polarized electrons with intense beams of either spin-polarized protons, deuterons, and helium-3 or unpolarized nuclei up to uranium. Detector concepts are now being developed to detect the high-energy scattered particles as well as the low-energy debris as a means to definitively understand how the matter we are all made of is bound together.”

For more detailed information and instruction for submissions, proceed to BNL’s EIC Expressions of Interest website.

Deadline for submission is November 1, 2020.

In case of questions please contact Dr. Elke-Caroline Aschenauer and Dr. Rolf Ent.
