Standing Wave SC 9-cell RF cavities. Problems:
c. Trapped modes. If the cells of the structure have the same length, the field in the end cells is the same as in the regular cells only for the operating mode. For all other modes the maximal field may occur not in the end cells, but in the regular cells. It may happen that the field in the end cells is small, preventing high-order mode (HOM) extraction – the so-called trapped modes.
SC Traveling Wave Structure
Alternative structures should be discussed and developed!
Our proposed alternative approach – a superconducting traveling wave acceleration structure (STWA)
Higher transit time factor (T~1) – higher acceleration gradient for the same surface RF magnetic field. For an ideal structure with a small aperture
( is phase advance per cell) and the acceleration gradient gain compared to SW -structure is
Gain = E /E = 2/sin(/2)
SCTW Structure Advantages (1)
1. Higher Gradient. The gain in the accelerating gradient of the traveling wave accelerating structure relative to a standing wave -structure versus the phase advance per cell for the ideal case. For = /2 (90) the gain is √2, or 42% (!) - for the ideal structure, of course.
SCTW Structure Advantages (2)
SCTW Structure Advantages. (3)
- compensate for microphonics and Lorentz force and
- provide good VSWR ratio in the structure and feedback waveguide.

3. First suggestion to use STWA for SC linear collider in order to increase
acceleration gradient by decrease of the electric field on the aperture to avoid
breakdown (N. Solyak, 1998)
SC TW structure for linear collider with the feedback waveguide excited through directional coupler. The structure is optimized in order to decrease the aperture electric field (N. Solyak, 1998).

4. Suggestion to use a STWA structure with small phase advance per cell in order to minimize surface RF magnetic field to eliminate quenches that limit the acceleration gradient in SC structures. Two-coupler concept without high power bridge (V. Yakovlev, 2001).

We propose the development of a STWA structure for ILC

Schematic of an example of a traveling wave structure with a feedback waveguide and feedback couplers. The input coupler is not shown. Above: The gain in accelerating gradient versus phase advance per cell. The aperture is 60 mm, the diaphragm thickness is 11.5 mm wide, and the surface magnetic and electric fields are the same as for the Reentrant structure .Left: gain in the gradient of the TW structure compared to a SW, ideal case.
The cavity geometry and RF magnetic field pattern in the superconducting TW accelerating (STWA) cavity. The TESLA, Low-Loss and Re-Entrant cavities are presented above for comparison.
Cavity Shape ~ 24 % gain
The cell shape has been optimized to reach the maximum accelerating gradient while keeping the magnitude of surface magnetic and electric fields less than the experimentally verified limits.
1050 phase advance 24 % gradient gain
Field Flatness ~ 26 % gain
The stability of the /2-mode gives the possibility of using long accelerating structures. It allows further accelerating gradient increase of 26 % - see the gap of 283 mm at TESLA.
Ideal gain ~ 50 %

Optimization of the Feedback Waveguide.
Magnetic field enhancement in the waveguide caused by the bend. Rin is the internal bend radius.
Wave reflection from the bend.
Taking into account a possible field enhancement in the waveguide bend and coaxial coupler elements, the 20 mm height was chosen.
- two independent tuners are necessary in order to tune both partial standing wave modes to the resonance:
- main tuner that compensates for the structure frequency deviation caused by microphonics, Lorentz force, etc;
- special “matcher” in the feedback waveguide that compensates reflections from the structure-waveguide coupler, bends, etc.

Dispersion curves for the first six dipole modes
Transmission |S12| for the lowest dipole dispersion curve for 9 cells
Transmission |S12| for the second dipole and second monopole modes
Transmission for higher frequencies is good enough to extract the modes from the structure (HOM couplers)
In first part of the project, we propose to demonstrate high gradient operation and conduct RF field measurements for a single-cell cavity experiment that is customary for experimental high power testing of all new types of SC cavities like the Reentrant, Low-Loss or Ichiro designs proposed especially for the ILC application.
The single test cavity will have the same geometry as full-sized STWA and feedback waveguide.
This experiment will establish a baseline for characterization of the proposed methods and technology and will validate the suitability of the STWA structureconcept for potential ILC applications.
Problems to be solved in the first stage
●refinement of the single-cell cavity and feedback waveguide electrical parameters in order to achieve the same ratio of the RF field in the feedback waveguide to the field in the cavity as those in the full-sized STWA structure.
● conceptual design to be done of the single-cell cavity with feedback waveguide.
● engineering design development of the single test cavity to be done by AES Inc.
●fabrication of two or three single-cell test cavities by AES Inc. More than one cavity will be necessary to reduce uncontrollable negative factors that may influence the high-gradient test results, again a common practice in SC cavity development.
Problems to be solved on the first stage (2)
● full surface processing of a single test cavity with feedback to be carried out at the FNAL SC surface processing facility
● high gradient testing of the single test cavity at the FNAL vertical cryomodule
● theoretical analysis and computer modeling for a) tuning parameters, b) HOM damping, c) high-power input, and d) beam loading issues
