  4. High Power Fundamental Power Coupler for Next Generation Light Sources

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 03c

    Future third-generation light sources, such as the NSLS-II synchrotron light source proposed for Brookhaven National Laboratory, push the operating current and subsequent beam power to levels beyond the capabilities of single CESR-B cavities. The proposed light source will require 500mA and 1000kW of radiated beam power that must be provided through the power couplers/windows. This project will de ...

  5. Development of Alternative Reduced-Cost Helium Vessels for ILC Cavities

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 48a

    The International Linear Collider represents the next great undertaking for the worldwide high energy physics community. In addition to the technical challenges, the political realities demand that ILC R&D focus on reducing the cost of the components of this massive facility. The helium vessels that enclose each of the 16,000 superconducting cavities have been identified as a cost driver for the c ...

  6. Improved Superconducting Accelerator System for Next Generation Light Sources

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: 03c

    Modern synchrotron light sources have come to rely upon superconducting radio frequency (SRF) acceleration to achieve high luminosity. To date, the workhorse in this area has been the SRF system for the CESR-B machine, which has been employed on many light sources in the last several years. However, as the quest for higher performance continues, this system is being stretched beyond its design lim ...

  7. Engineered Composites for USC Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED POWDER SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: 58b

    Ultrasupercritical (USC) steam boilers will operate at higher temperature/pressure than subcritical and supercritical steam boilers in service today. However, the majority of current high-temperature materials do not posses the desired characteristics for the operating conditions of a USC unit (760 C/35MPa). This project will develop innovative composite powders and composites that will surpass th ...

  10. High Resolution and Fast Scanning Speed SQUID Based Nondestructive Inspection System of Niobium Sheets for SRF Cavities

    SBC: Amac International, Inc.            Topic: 30

    High energy physics accelerators and instruments in other fields require the use of thousands of superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavities that are made of high purity niobium (Nb) material. The purity of Nb is critical for these cavities to reach the highest accelerating fields. Tantalum (Ta) is the most prolific of metal contaminants, can cause thermal breakdown, and can prevent the cavitie ...
