The proposed eRHIC accelerator will collide 20 GeV polarized electrons with 250GeV polarized protons, 100GeV/n polarized 3He ions, or other unpolarized hadron ions. The electron accelerator of the eRHIC will be based on a 1.665GeV Energy Recovery Linac (ERL) placed in the RHIC tunnel and of two FFAG recirculating rings placed alongside the RHIC accelerator. The electron bunches reach the 20 GeV energy after passing 12-times through the ERL while they recirculate it the FFAG rings. We will present the principle of the operation of the accelerator; the various design studies that are currently in process, and the impact of the accelerators in the field of nuclear physics.
