Task Force Charge

The charge to the BNL EIC Science Case Task Force, as sent to the physics department by Tom Ludlam on 03/19/09, can be found here.



The first EIC Task Force Meeting was held in the Large Seminar Room on Thursday, April 9th, 10:00 - 12:30. The agenda, with links to the talks, is given below:

10:00 - 10:45 - Welcome and Introduction - Sam, Steve and Tom

10:45 - 11:15 - Important Milestones for the EIC Task Force - Thomas (e+A), Elke (e+p and detector)

11:15 - 12:30 - EIC LDRD Proposals

   e+A MC-Generator development - Thomas
   Electroweak Physics at an EIC - Werner
   e+A Saturation Theory - Raju
   Development of hybrid strip-pad silicon sensors - Eduard
   Super high-resolution ToF - Mickey
   Large-area ToF - Zhangbu
   High-level online tracking trigger - Aihong

12:30 - 12:35 - EIC machine design and accelerator LDRDs - appetite whetter, Vladimir

Wed April 15th

In today's meeting, we focussed on the accelerator LDRD plans. The talks which were presented were:

10:00 - 12:30 - Accelerator LDRD Proposals

   MeRHIC update - V Ptitsyn
   Development of laser system for polarised e source - T Rao
   Compact HOM damping scheme for 704 MHz LINACS - R Calaga
   New eRHIC injection system - H Hahn
   MeRHIC prototype electron accelerator cavity design and fabrication - A Burrill
   Polarised 3He++ ion source development for RHIC - A Zelenski
   Simulation, design and prototyping on an FEL for proof-of-principles for coherent electron-cooling - V Litvinenko

The next Task Force meeting will be held on Wed Apr 22nd at 10:00 where we will have further discussion on the golden EIC measurements. An e-mail (with agenda) will be sent out to the group in due course.
