The Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) is being envisioned as the next facility to be constructed by the DOE Nuclear Physics program. Brookhaven National Laboratory is proposing eRHIC, a facility based on the existing RHIC complex as a cost effective realization of the EIC project with a peak luminosity of 1034 cm-2 sec-1. An electron storage ring with an energy range from 5 to 18 GeV will be added in the existing RHIC tunnel. A spin-transparent rapid-cycling synchrotron (RCS) will serve as a full-energy polarized electron injector. Recent design improvements include reduction of the IR magnet strengths to avoid the necessity for Nb3Sn magnets, and a novel hadron injection scheme to maximize the integrated luminosity. We will provide an overview of this proposed project and present the current design status.

For the proposed electron-ion collider eRHIC, an electron storage ring will be installed in the existing RHIC tunnel. To reach the high luminosity of up to 1034 cm-2 sec-1, beam currents up to 2.5A have to be stored. Besides high luminosity the physics program requires spin polarization levels of 70 percent, with both spin "up" and spin "down" orientations present in the fill. This is only feasible by using a full-energy spin polarized injector that replaces bunches faster than the depolarization rate. To limit the repetition rate of that injector to about one hertz, the polarization lifetime in the storage ring has to be maximized by proper spin matching and countermeasures for the machine misalignments. We will give an overview of the electron storage ring design.
