Award List:

An Extremely High Power, Field-Coupled, Low-Loss RF Transmission Line for SRF Cavities

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Viet Nguyen
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
73155S03-I Superconducting particle accelerators require high power radio frequency (RF) couplers that have high capital and operational costs. The operational costs include power dissipation at cryogenic temperatures and operational down time. New coupler designs are needed to reduce these costs… More

A New SRF Cavity Processing Technique for the Elimination of Field Emission and Surface Preparation in Fully Assembled Cavities

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Ian Brown
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
73156S03- I Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) cavities are a critical device for present and future particle accelerators in military, research, and industrial applications. The performance of these cavities is limited by field emission, which is controlled by cavity processing techniques. … More

An Extremely High Power, Field Coupled, Low Loss RF Transmission Line for SRF Cavities

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Viet Nguyen, Dr.
Award Amount: $749,971.00
Abstract:
73155-Superconducting particle accelerators require high power radio frequency (RF) couplers, which have high capital and operational costs. The operational costs include power dissipation at cryogenic temperatures and operational down time. New coupler designs are needed that reduce these costs… More

ILC Coupler Design

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Viet Nguyen-Tuong, Dr
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
In accelerators used in High Energy Physics research, one problem involves the introduction of the radio frequency (RF) power required to accelerate a charged particle beam from the outside world into the ultrahigh vacuum beam environment. This problem is compounded for a superconducting RF (SRF)… More

ILC Coupler Design

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Viet Nguyen-Tuong, Dr
Award Amount: $650,000.00
Abstract:
Superconducting radio frequency (SRF) power couplers are used to introduce RF power into evacuated accelerating cavities typically operating at a few degrees Kelvin. These couplers are historically a problematic component that adversely affects the cost and reliability of the entire accelerator… More
