Interaction Region Design Considerations and the Machine Detector Interface for Electron Ion Colliders
Melding the physics goals of an EIC with the practicalities of accelerator and magnet design leads to many IR design challenges. Simply bringing beams with quite different properties cleanly into collision with high luminosity and without placing intrusive machine elements inside the detector volume is a first major challenge. In addition, EIC physics requires polarized beams, high field and/or large bore IR magnets for good forward charged/neutral acceptance and rear electron tagging and the integration of systems for precision luminosity and polarization determination. We draw upon HERA-II, eRHIC, JLEIC and LHeC IR design experience to show how to address such challenges in this talk.
