Hadron Physics Seminar

Hadron structure with the EIC

by Andrea Bressan (Instituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN)(INFN-Trieste))

Wednesday, August 30, 2017 from to (Europe/Berlin)
at GSI ( KBW lecture hall )
Description
The seminar will presents the science case of an Electron-Ion Collider (EIC), focused on the structure and interactions of gluon-dominated matter. It will describe briefly few golden physics measurements along with accelerator and detector concepts required to achieve them.

The EIC will be able to change the center of mass energy from the limits of fixed target experiments around 20 GeV to an upper limit of about 140 GeV and will exceed the capabilities of HERA  by adding polarized proton and  light-ion beams, a wide variety of heavy-ion beams at two to three orders of magnitude increase in luminosity.
