An Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) in USA is currently discussed as a next-generation facility for high-energy nuclear physics. The main goal of the EIC is to study fundamental questions of Quantum Chromodynamics, which include the origin of the nucleon mass and spin and the three-dimensional structure of the nucleon in terms of quarks and gluons, the emergent properties of dense systems of gluons, and influence of nuclear matter on distributions of quarks and gluons and propagation of color charges through it. The EIC machine designs are aimed at achieving variable center of mass energies of 20 – 100 GeV, upgradable to 150 GeV, high degree of polarization ( 70%) of beams of electrons, protons and light nuclei, high collision luminosity of 1033–34 cm–2s–1, and ion beams from deuteron to heaviest (Lead) nuclei. In this contribution, we present the current status of the EIC project, its physics program, and proposed designs of EIC realization.

Accessing the gluonic structure of light nuclei at a future electron-ion collider Mäntysaari, Heikki; Schenke, Björn (American Physical Society, 2020)We show how exclusive vector meson production off light ions can be used to probe the spatial distribution of small-x gluons in the deuteron and 3He wave functions. In particular, we demonstrate how short-range repulsive ...
Gluon imaging using azimuthal correlations in diffractive scattering at the Electron-Ion Collider Mäntysaari, Heikki; Roy, Kaushik; Salazar, Farid; Schenke, Björn (American Physical Society, 2021)We study coherent diffractive photon and vector meson production in electron-proton and electron-nucleus collisions within the Color Glass Condensate effective field theory. We show that electron-photon and electron-vector ...
The importance of kinematic twists and genuine saturation effects in dijet production at the Electron-Ion Collider Boussarie, Renaud; Mäntysaari, Heikki; Salazar, Farid; Schenke, Björn (Springer, 2021)We compute the differential yield for quark anti-quark dijet production in high-energy electron-proton and electron-nucleus collisions at small x as a function of the relative momentum P⊥ and momentum imbalance k⊥ of the ...
Multigluon Correlations and Evidence of Saturation from Dijet Measurements at an Electron-Ion Collider Mäntysaari, Heikki; Mueller, Niklas; Salazar, Farid; Schenke, Björn (American Physical Society, 2020)We study inclusive and diffractive dijet production in electron-proton and electron-nucleus collisions within the color glass condensate effective field theory. We compute dijet cross sections differentially in both mean ...
Azimuthal correlations in diffractive scattering at the Electron-Ion Collider Dumitru, Adrian; Mäntysaari, Heikki; Paatelainen, Risto; Kaushik, Roy, Salazar, Farid; Schenke, Björn (Stichting SciPost, 2022)We calculate azimuthal correlations between the exclusively produced vector meson and the scattered electron in Deep Inelastic Scattering processes at the future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC). We identify "kinematical" and ...
