Higgs and Electron-Ion Physics with LHeC at CERN

Max Klein (Liverpool University)


The Large Hadron electron Collider (LHeC) is a project to combine the intense hadron beams of the LHC, in its high luminosity phase of operation, with an electron beam of 60 GeV using energy recovery techniques for achieving unprecedented high luminosity in TeV energy scale ep and eA collisions. The seminar presents a view on the status of the project, a few highlights of its unique physics programmme and a sketch of the detector under design.
