Abstract
Superconducting RF (SRF) systems for accelerators typically contain unwanted frequencies or higher order modes (HOMs) that must be absorbed. Currently, ferrite or other lossy ceramic HOM absorbers and their attachments to drift tubes adjacent to SRF cavities are not robust enough, and tend to crack under tensile and thermal stresses. New processes, techniques, design and construction of improved HOM loads will be developed. A scaled-down version that can be assembled in the beam pipe of a 1.3 GHz Cornell cryo
