Research perspectives at Jefferson Lab: 12 GeV and beyond

  • Kees de Jager
Laboratory physics programs and new facilities


The plans for upgrading the CEBAF accelerator at Jefferson Lab to 12 GeV are presented. The research program supporting that upgrade is illustrated with a few selected examples. The instrumentation under design to carry out that research program is discussed. Finally, a conceptual design of a future upgrade which combines an electron-ion collider facility at a luminosity of up to 1035 cm-2s-1 and a CM energy of up to 65 GeV with a 25 GeV fixed-target facility.
