The Interaction Region (IR) Machine Detector Interface (MDI) for an electron-hadron collider such as the LHeC/FCC-eh combines challenging aspects of both hadron and e+e- colliders. High-field superconducting magnets are needed to provide strong focusing and deflection fields for handling a stiff high-rigidity hadron beam. But we must also protect the electrons from seeing any such large...
