The LHeC is envisioned to collider electrons and protons concurrently with proton-proton collisions at the LHC. The overall status of the project will be summarized. This comprises a reviw of the accelerator facility, the Energy Recovery Linac, and the detector design.
The ATLAS and CMS collaborations at the Large Hadron Collider have observed a new particle consistent with a scalar boson and with a mass of about 125 GeV. The prospects of studying this newly discovered boson at the LHeC are reviewed. This includes ability to isolate the H to bb decay with a large signal-to-background ratio about S/B = 2 and the model independent exploration of the CP-properties of the HVV,V = W,Z couplings. The latter is a unique capability of ep collisions. The propescts of other decay channels will also be discussed. An enhanced instantaneous luminosity scenario of L = 1034cm−2s−1 is considered. In this scenario the LHeC becomes a Higgs factory.
