Industry-built cavity successfully tested at JLab

04 March 2012

One of the β=0.53 SRF cavities built by U.S. industry was shipped from MSU to Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (JLab) where it was successfully processed following the FRIB protocols and subsequently Dewar-tested. Measurements at JLab show that the cavity exceeds both FRIB design field and quality factor as did prior measurements at MSU.

As part of its SRF cavity acquisition strategy, FRIB has entered into a contract with a domestic supplier to manufacture the largest quantity of SRF cavities ever produced domestically for an accelerator project.
