Research Institution
The quest for deepened understanding of the origin of the universe requires continued search for elementary particles, for which high-energy accelerators are necessary tools. Reducing the size, complexity, and cost for future accelerators is essential if they are ever to be built. New technologies that can underlie future accelerators are needed to meet these goals, including that proposed here. Rapid tuning of the superconducting cavities in a future particle accelerator can allow operation with greatly reduced radio frequency drive power. That tuning is to be achieved using a fast ferroelectric tuner to be developed in this project. Commercial Applications and Other Benefits: Rapid tuners for superconducting accelerator cavities can find application in a wide range of particle accelerators, including those with applications to science, medical diagnostics and therapy, materials processing, and national security.
