Title: LEIR Cooler Status

Abstract

The LHC program foresees lead-lead collisions in the spring of 2008 with luminosity up to 1027 cm-2s-1. To achieve this, the Low Energy Ion Ring (LEIR) has undergone a major upgrade in order to transform lead ion pulses from the LINAC3 into short high-brightness bunches using multi-turn injection, cooling and accumulation. The electron cooler plays an essential role in producing the required beam brightness by rapidly cooling down the newly injected beam and then dragging it to the stack. For the LEIR project, a new cooler has been constructed in collaboration with BINP Novosibirsk. It will deliver up to 600 mA of electron current at an energy of 2.3 keV (corresponding to the lead ion energy of 4.2 MeV/u) and has the advantage that the radius and density profile can be varied to match the characteristics of the injected and circulating lead ion beam. The device was delivered at the end of 2004 and is presently being commissioned. First results of lead ion cooling and stacking with a variable density electron beam are expected in September.
