We will present currents status of the CeC experiment at RHIC and discuss plans for future. Special focus will be given to unexpected experimental results obtained during RHIC Run 18 and discovery of a previously unknown type of microwave instability. We called this new phenomenon micro-bunching Plasma Cascade Instability (PCI). Our plan for future experiments includes suppressing this instability in the CeC accelerator and using it as a broad-band amplifier in the CeC system.

Recently, we proposed a new type of instability, Plasma Cascade Instability (PCI), to be used as the amplification mechanism of a Coherent Electron Cooling (CeC) system, which we call Plasma Cascade Amplifier (PCA). In this work, we present our analytical estimate of the cooling force as expected from a PCA- based CeC system and compare it with the simulation results. As examples, we apply our analysis to a few possible CeC systems and investigate the evolution of the circulating ion beams in the presence of cooling.

  Cooling of a high energy ion beam is essential for future electron-ion colliders to reach high luminosity. It is critical to demonstrate experimentally cooling by a bunched electron beam and to benchmark the experimental data with simulations. Such experimental and simulation studies were carried out by a collaboration of Jefferson Lab and Institute of Modern Physics (IMP), utilizing a DC cooler at IMP. The thermionic gun of the DC cooler was modified by pulsing its grid voltage to produce cooling electron pulses in a pulse length range of 0.07 - 3.5 µs, with a 250 kHZ repetition frequency. The performed experiments clearly demonstrated cooling of a RF focused ion bunches by this pulsed electron beam. The momentum spread of cooled ion bunch has been reduced from ~2x10-3 to ~6x10-4 in less than 0.5 second. The simulation results agree with the measurements qualitatively. In this paper, we present a brief overview of the experiments and also show the main experimental and simulation results.
