Description of the title page image:

The 2 MeV electron cooling system installed in the cooler synchrotron COSY; it was proposed to further boost the luminosity even in presence of strong heating effects of high-density internal targets. The installation and commissioning of the cooler took place in the summer shutdown 2013. The design and construction of the cooler was accomplished in cooperation with the Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics in Novosibirsk, Russia. The 2 MeV cooler is also well suited in the start-up phase of the High Energy Storage Ring (HESR) at FAIR in Darmstadt. It can be used for beam cooling at injection energy and is intended to test new features of the high energy electron cooler for HESR.
