SLAC TTF3 Coupler Processing and Coupler Capabilities
- Jeff Tice, SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
Thursday, October 11, 10:00 AM - Special Seminar
NSCL Lecture Hall
The TTF3-style coupler is typically used to power 1.3 GHz TESLA-type superconducting cavities. For the US ILC program, parts purchased in industry for such couplers are received at SLAC where they are inspected, cleaned, assembled as pairs in a Class 10 cleanroom, pumped down, baked at 150 C and rf processed. The pairs are then shipped to FNAL and installed in cavities that are tested at input power levels up to 300 kW. The discussion will include lessons learned from preparation of 44 couplers for ILC at SLAC and infrastructure requirements.
