Title: Novel Lattice Solutions for the LHeC

Unprecedently high luminosity of 10 34 cm -2 s -1, promised by the LHeC accelerator complex poses several beam dynamics and lattice design challenges. As part of accelerator design process, exploration of innovative beam dynamics solutions and their lattice implementations is the key to mitigating performance limitations due to fundamental beam phenomena, such as: synchrotron radiation and collective instabilities. This article will present beam dynamics driven approach to accelerator design, which in particular, addresses emittance dilution due to quantum excitations and beam breakup instability in a large scale, multi-pass Energy Recovery Linac (ERL). The use of ERL accelerator technology to provide improved beam quality and higher brightness continues to be the subject of active community interest and active accelerator development of future Electron Ion Colliders (EIC). Here, we employ current state of though for ERLs aiming at the energy frontier EIC. We will follow conceptual design options recently identified for the LHeC. The main thrust of these studies was to enhance the collider performance, while limiting overall power consumption through exploring interplay between emittance preservation and efficiencies promised by the ERL technology. Here, this combined with a unique design of the Interaction Region (IR) optics gives the impression that luminositymore » of 10 34 cm -2 s -1 is indeed feasible.« less
