  3. A New Quarter-Wave Coaxial Coupler For1.3 GHZ Superconducting Cavity

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 37b

    The current design for the rf couplers for the ILC cavity introduces unacceptable emittance growth in the beam. We have developed two new couplers designed to mitigate the emittance growth problem by preserving the axial symmetry of the cavity fields. Optimization of the design of the coaxial coupler units. Complete analysis of the ILC structure with the new coupler units was performed to confi ...

  10. Recovery Act- Nanocomposite Coatings for Life Extension in Zinc Pot Rolls

    SBC: MesoCoat            Topic: 04c

    The coating of steel sheet by continuous hot dipping in a molten metal bath of zinc or in a Zn-Al melt is the most efficient and economical method for providing corrosion protection to steel sheet. However, the processing of metals in liquid metal results in the reaction of the liquid metal with the tooling and can result in dross build-up and damage to the work piece. In order to address this, se ...
