Description

The prospective future Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) would offer a unique opportunity to understand the role of gluons in strongly interacting nuclear matter. An ambitious generic detector R&D program started in 2011 in order to address the scientific requirements for measurements at such a new facility. In particular, a dedicated consortium was created with the goal of developing new technologies for calorimeter applications at EIC. This R&D is performed by various groups and involves both the central barrel calorimeter, as well as forward calorimetry in both the electron and hadron going directions. In this talk we will focus on the forward calorimetry options, which include the development of tungsten scintillating fiber technology SPACAL, as well as crystal calorimetry, in particular using lead tungstate. We will report on the status of the different projects and plans for the future.
