Registration will close on May 31, 2015. With the advent of high power photoinjectors and high performance superconducting RF acceleration, there is the potential for low energy electron beams with currents up to 10 times higher that those generally available today. This workshop will explore the physics opportunities that will be opened up by such beams, focusing on parity violation, the search for dark matter, dark photons and axions, and electromagnetic nuclear physics, as well as the accelerator, detector, target and polarimetry technologies that make them possible. Discussion will focus on electron beams with energies up to 500 MeV and electron current of up to 100 mA (unpolarized) and 10 mA (polarized) with energy recovery, with the goal of answering:
- What is the potential reach of experiments using very intense low energy electron beams?
- What technical challenges need to be overcome to reach those goals?
- Parity Violation -- co-conveners: Kent Paschke (U. Virginia), Maxim Perelstein (Cornell)
- Dark Matter, Dark Photons, Axions -- co-conveners: Andrei Afanasev (George Washington University), Gordan Krnjaic (Perimeter Inst.), Bogdan Wojtsekhowski (JLAB), Philip Schuster (Perimeter Inst.)
- Electromagnetic nuclear physics -- co-conveners: Jan Bernauer (MIT), Ronald Gilman (Rutgers)
- Technology -- co-conveners: Vadim Ptitsyn (BNL), Joe Grames (JLAB), Alexander Nass (Fz. Jülich)
