  4. Introduction • Muon cooling channels call for normal conducting RF cavities with highest possible accelerating gradients • Muon beam: secondary, unstable and has short decay time • (~ 2 s at rest) • Created with LARGE 6-D phase space • High gradient with large beam aperture (iris) • Strong external magnetic field needed to confine muon beams • Normal conducting • Muon beam decays, manipulation must be done quickly, including cooling • High accelerating gradient • Goal: design and engineering for • RF cavity with high shunt impedance, large beam aperture and withstand high peak RF field • Higher gradient for the same input RF power (less RF power) • No surface breakdown 201 MHz NC RF Cavity R&D Derun Li

  5. Introduction (cont’d) • Shunt impedance of an RF cavity • High peak RF field: Kilpatrick number • Required gradient at 201 MHz: ~ 16 MV/m • Kilpatrick: 15 MV/m • Required gradient at 805 MHz: ~ 30 MV/m • Kilpatrick: 26 MV/m 201 MHz NC RF Cavity R&D Derun Li

  6. Be window Choice of NC RF Cavity • Conventional approach: NC “Ω” cavity with open iris • “High” shunt impedance for open iris cavities • high peak surface field (high Epk/Eacc ~ 2) • Shunt impedance reduces with the increase of iris → Very difficult (if not possible) to achieve the gradient required for a muon cooling channel • Taking advantage of muon beam’s penetration property, we choose a RF cavity with irises terminated by windows or grids • Pillbox like cavity • Lower peak surface field (low Epk/Eacc ~ 1) • Independent phase control, higher transit factor • High shunt impedance, but with large windows 201 MHz NC RF Cavity R&D Derun Li
