Comparison with tesla cavities

Comparison with TESLA Cavities

  • Difference of Ep/Eacc and Hp/Eacc.

  • Difference of b. APT(0.64) vs. TESLA (1).

    • It might be more susceptible to multipacting (MP) due to the squeezed shape

APT cavity shape is not well optimized!

Issues that need to be addressed

Issues that need to be addressed

  • The APT Goal was achieved, but we need to achieve higher gradients for future machines to further reduce costs.

  • Q0 drops at medium and high gradient due to Multipacting (?) and Field emission.

  • Measures to take

    • MP free design of the cavity with MP codes.

    • Thermometry and other diagnostics for detecting heating spots to localize and identify the problem.

    • Improve contamination control during assembly to reduce field emission due to migrated particles.

Spoke cavity development for low energy sections of proton linacs

Spoke Cavity Development for Low-Energy Sections of Proton Linacs

  • Studies have been carried out at ANL since late ’80s (Jean Delayen, Ken Shepard)

  • Some advantages over elliptical cavities

    • Compact (~1/2 diameter of elliptical cavities for the same frequency)

    • Due to the lower frequency it can be operated at 4 K

    • Mechanically stable

    • Larger velocity acceptance

Activities at lanl in the field of high power superconducting proton linac structures

Very high gradients are not useful for low-b structures due to longitudinal envelope instability [T.P. Wangler and K.R.Crandall, Spoke Cavity Workshop, Los Alamos, Oct. 7-8, 2002.]

  • Our longitudinal beam-dynamics design approach has been to keep s0<90° and minimize the focusing period.

  • The cryomodules form piecewise constant FODO lattices where each period contains one cavity and one solenoid.

  • For 350-MHz proton linac in b range of 0.2 to 0.5 (20 to 150 MeV) we could use cavity gradients up to about 8 MV/m without longitudinal beam-dynamics problems.

HPSL Workshop, Naperville, May 22-24, 2005


Some questions that need to be answered

Some questions that need to be answered.

  • What is the experimentally (practically) achievable Hp at 4 K? It has been ~1800 Oe at 2 K with TESLA cavities. (Due to the decrease of Hc with lower temperature, i.e., ~14 % from 4 K to 2 K, and the better thermal conductivity of liquid He at T<2.17 K (Lambda point), it is expected that the achievable field is higher at 2 K. )

  • Are there any difference between elliptical and spoke cavities in terms of the field limitations? It has been shown for spoke cavities that the maximum fields are almost the same at 4 K and 2 K, whereas some elliptical cavities have shown much better results at 2 K than at 4K.

HPSL Workshop, Naperville, May 22-24, 2005


3 q 0 disease with low frequency cavities tests with 350 mhz spoke cavities

3. Q0 disease with low-frequency cavities (tests with 350 MHz spoke cavities)

  • Q0 disease is a degradation of Q0 due to niobium hydrides (Tc~1.2 K?) precipitated on the surface from bulk during slow cooldown by holding the cavity at medium temperatures (70-150 K, worst at ~100 K). It had been said before our tests that low frequency cavities (<500 MHz) do not show it.

  • A systematic Q disease tests have been carried out with our 350 MHz spoke cavities

    • Spoke cavities made of RRR~250 Nb.

    • Original H contest is unknown.

    • No high temperature heat treatment. (<150 °C)

    • Standard BCP (HF:HNO3:H3PO4=1:1:2) ~150 mm at <15°C

HPSL Workshop, Naperville, May 22-24, 2005


Summary of the q disease tests

Summary of the Q disease tests

  • With our 350-MHz spoke cavities, little Q disease occurs after 150-mm BCP, up to ~24 hours of holding time at ~100 K.

  • Holding the cavity for longer time causes Q disease.

  • The additional surface resistance due to the Q disease increases linearly after the increase starts.

  • Q disease disappears if the cavity is warmed up to 180 K.

HPSL Workshop, Naperville, May 22-24, 2005


Summary

Summary

  • Six b=0.64 700-MHz 5-cell cavities were prototyped and all of them exceeded APT specs, but needs better design in terms of optimum Hp/Eaccand MP, and further particulate contamination control to get higher gradients

  • Two b=0.175 350-MHz single-spoke spoke cavities were prototyped and both of them showed similar results and exceeded AAA specs.

  • It was found that Q0 disease occurs with our 350-MHz spoke cavities, but it does not occur if cooled down within 24 hours.
