Daisy Yuhas | 4 October 2012What is a quench? Everything has a limit—superconducting cavities are no exception. Physicists put voltage in their superconducting cavities to boost the energy of particles. But it’s possible to ask for too much from a cavity. When this happens, the cavity fails: the superconducting material becomes normal-conducting, the voltage collapses and the energy escapes. This is called a quench.

Image: ILC, Heiner Müller-Elsner | 30 August 2012Are you giving a talk about the ILC, cavities, S(C)RF or linac design and are looking for images that haven't been used a million times? A 17-image series following the life of a cavity from niobium ingot to finished cryomodule is now available on the Interactions image bank.

Daisy Yuhas | 23 August 2012Physicists need to understand each accelerator cavity individually before assembling a collider. One of the cavity characteristics physicists measure is called the cavity quality factor, Q factor for short. The LCpedia series continues.

Image: DESY | 7 June 2012Some 100 cavity and photo enthusiasts came to DESY last Wednesday to hear Karsten Büßer talk about "Cool Runnings" and see the picture story of cavities in the making by science photographer Heiner Müller-Elsner. The exhibition will be on show at DESY for a few more weeks. Read more here.

Barbara Warmbein | 24 May 2012There’s no doubt that the life of a cavity is exciting – lots of power, whizzing particles, superconductivity, the lot. How does it get there, what are the stations of its life? A new photo series is in production that follows a cavity from niobium ingot to cryomodule, and an exhibition of these images opens next week at DESY in Germany.
