Abstract:

The proposed program addresses the need for an improved manufacturing process for electropolishing niobium RF superconducting cavities for the International Linear Collider. Specifically, the aim of the project is to create microscopically clean and smooth niobium surfaces on the interior of the niobium cavities. The objective of the proposed SBIR program is to demonstrate and develop a sophisticated FARADAYIC electropolishing process for fabrication of niobium cavities in hydrofluoric acid-free solutions. The Phase I program will demonstrate the potential to achieve the surface roughness, cleanliness and performance set by the Department of Energy for the application of interest, including electropolishing samples for evaluation by Faraday
