The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Nb3Sn Deposition for RF Analysis

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: 36a

    Increasingly, superconducting radio-frequency (SRF) technology is replacing conventional copper radio frequency (RF) technology in new and upgraded particle accelerators. SRF cavities consume less power than conventional cavities to produce a given accelerating gradient, leading to smaller accelerators and higher beam energies. Currently, niobium is the only superconductor in wide usage by the SRF ...
