This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Upgrading RHIC for higher luminosity ' While RHIC has only just started running for its heavy ion physics program, in the first run last summer, we achieved 10% of the design luminosity. In this paper we discuss plans for increasing the luminosity by a factor of 35 beyond the nominal design. A factor of 4 should be straightforward by doubling the number of bunches per ring and squeezing the /spl beta/* from 2 to 1 m at selected interaction points. An additional factor of 8 to 10 could be possible by using electron cooling to counteract intrabeam scattering and reduce the emittance of the beams.
