1IntroductionWhat is LEP3?LEP3 is an idea for afuture CERN projectof ahigh luminosity e+e collider in the LHC tunnel,to study the Higgs BosonThe idea is that by re-using existing infrastructure, the project would be low-costThe LEP3 project requires as a prerequisiteThe existence of the Higgs bosonThat the Higgs boson is light (around 125GeV)This is not an original idea; many people have been toying with the idea since the demise of LEP2 until today. The indications of a low-mass Higgs gave the idea new impetus. A good reading on the idea can be found in: A High Luminosity e+e- Collider in the LHC tunnel to study the Higgs Boson, A. Blondel and F. Zimmermann, arXiv:1112.2518v2 [hep-ex] (submitted to Phys. Lett. B)2Higgs massFrom Moriond 2012:

Both ATLAS and CMS exclude a SM scalar boson up to ~550 GeV except in range (117-128 GeV): excess 2.5-2.9 at 125-126 GeV/c2 (consistent)

ATLAS : and ZZ CMS : CDF+ D0 mostlybb&WW Too soon to claim even evidence, butWho would bet against Higgs boson @125 GeV?

My guess: Look Elsewhere + Look There CL probably >~ local significance of 2d experiment

More data in 2012 5 and more channels! A. Blondel, experimental summary talk: 3Higgs production mechanismAssuming that the Higgs is light, in an e+e machine it is produced by the higgstrahlung processProduction xsection actually peaks at relatively low centre-of-mass energies

e+e-Z*ZHFor a Higgs of 125GeV, a centre of mass energy of 240GeV is sufficient4120GeV per beamThis is only 15% higher than the final energy reached by LEP2Although synchrotron radiation goes with the fourth power of beam energy, the increase in SR power lost would be less than a factor of two more than LEP (provided we use a ring with the same bending ratio and beam current)The need for accelerating cavities would also be (a bit less than) a factor of two higher than that of LEP2So, the question presents itself: could an e+e accelerator be designed so that it fits in the LHC tunnel that would lead to acceptable luminosity and not require too much cooling power?5The LHeC synergyAs it turns out, there exists a design for an electron ring in the LHC tunnel, provided by the LHeC working groupIn the LHeC design, the electron energy is 60GeV but the beam current is rather high, resulting to a 44MW SR power dissipation.The lattice of the electron ring in the LHeC design has been developed with the primary goal that the ring fits on top of the LHC magnets. The dipole filling factor is low (75%) resulting in a bending radius of 2620m (compared to 3096m for LEP2) 6The major assumptionsFor the LEP3 preliminary study, we started first by limiting the total SR power dissipation to 100MW (50MW per beam).If we assume a wall-to-beam energy conversion efficiency of 50%, we end up with an RF system that consumes 200MW.This is a high power consumption, but not extremely high (current CERN contract with EDF is 200MW for the whole of CERN during LHC operation)We have used as baseline the lattice calculations of the LHeC study (it provides horizontal emittance significantly smaller than for LEP). As this was not optimised for the LEP3 requirements, we will soon have our own lattice.

7The RF systemWe can profit of 20 years of development in RF accelerating technology to assume an RF gradient of 18MV/m, almost 2.5 times higher that of LEP.The energy loss per turn of a single electron at 120GeV is 7GeVThe total length of the RF system is therefore around 500m, similar to that of LEP2.A good candidate for the RF system would be ILC-developed SC accelerating cavities at a frequency of 1.3 GHz that help to reduce the bunch length, thus enabling a smaller by*. Cryo power needed is less than half that of the LHC.

8LHeC space considerations

: LHeC: Space reserved for future e+e machineThe LHeC ring is displaced due to the requirement of keeping the same circumference as the LHC ring. LEP3 has no such requirement9The low field dipolesAnother synergy with LHeC, although LEP3 would require a double decker magnet

BINP short modelPrototypes of LHeC designs: Compact and lightweight to fit in the existing tunnel, yet mechanically stable

CERN 400 mm long model

LEP3 Artists impression10EmittancesHorizontal: The unnormalized horizontal emittance is determined by the optics and varies with the square of the beam energy. We simply scale it from the 60-GeV LHeC value. Vertical: The vertical emittance depends on the quality of vertical dispersion and coupling correction. We assume the vertical to horizontal emittance ratio to be similar to the one for LEP. [The ultimate limit on the vertical emittance is set by the opening angle effect (emission angle of the SR photons), which is negligible (below 1fm) for our field (0.15T) and energy (120GeV)]

11Bunch lengthThe bunch length scales linearly with the momentum spread, with the momentum compaction factor and with the inverse synchrotron frequency. The bunch length of LEP3 (0.3cm) is smaller than for LEP (1.6cm), despite the higher beam energy. This is due to the smaller momentum compaction factor, the larger RF voltage, and the higher synchrotron frequency.

12Beam current/# bunchesThe limit on SR power defines the beam current, which is 7.2mA or 4x1012 particles per beam.Distributing this over three bunches gives a beam-beam tune shift of 0.13, similar to the max. beam-beam tune shift reached at KEKB.This requires further studies13Vertical *We are aiming for a value of 1.2mm. This can be achieved if the final focusing quad is inside the experiments.With a free length between the IP and the entrance face of the first quadrupole of 4 m, plus a quadrupole length of 4 m, the quadrupole field gradient needs to be about 17 T/m and an aperture (radius) of 5 cm would correspond to more than 20sy.

14Luminosity/Beam lifetimeWith the * values mentioned, luminosity for LEP3 is projected to be 1.3x1034cm-2s-1At LEP The lifetime of colliding beams was determined by radiative Bhahba scattering with a cross section of 0.215 barn.At top energy in LEP2, the lifetime was dominated by the loss of particles in collisions.For LEP3, we find a beam lifetime teff of 12 minutes LEP3 would be burning the beams to produce physics very efficiently. 15Two-ring designDue to low beam lifetime, it is more efficient to use a second ring to continuously top up the main ring that would remain at an energy of 120GeV. If the top-up interval is short compared with the beam lifetime, this would provide an average luminosity very close to the peak luminosity.For the top-up we need to produce about 4x1012 positrons every few minutes, or of order 2x1010 positrons per second. For comparison, the LEP injector complex delivered positrons at a rate of order 1011 per second.

16Injection schemeThe LEP injector complex is no more.We would need to either revive a scheme a-la LEP, or design a completely new injectorInjecting at 20GeV would be ideal, injecting at 10GeV would be tolerable[A CLIC demonstrator of about 1km long would be a perfect injector (at a cost)]17Yearly statisticsOperation at a luminosity of 1034 /cm2/s for 107s/year leads to an integrated luminosity of 100 fb-1/yr. For an e+e- HZ cross section of 200 fb, this yields 2x104 events per year in each experiment (we have assumed 2), allowing precise measurements of the Higgs Boson mass, cross-section and decay modes, even invisible ones. It would also provide more than 106 WW events per year in each IP. This machine would have similar or better performance than a linear collider operating at the same energy, and would reach it more economically. Such a machine can also revisit the Z peak, possibly with polarized beams, and obliterate the LEP results.18Possible showstoppersThe LEP3 design is at its infancy and a much deeper look is needed before we can determine if the project is viable or not.Beamstrahlung problems would need to be looked at first (V. I. Telnov, arXiv:1203.6563v1 [physics.acc-ph] 29 Mar 2012 reduces the LEP3 luminosity by a factor of 4)19Similar ideasKatsunobu Oide (KEK Director, Accelerator Laboratory) gave a talk about a possible LEP3- like machine in Japan:
