Achieving cavity resonance

| 7 July 2011 Keeping accelerating cavities tuned to the right frequency requires continual, gentle hammering by a little device called a piezoelectric tuner. DESY scientists have mastered the art and science of applying the piezo to cavities, bringing them to within several ten-thousandths a percent of the desired frequency.

“Set it and forget it!”

and | 28 October 2010 Fermilab and KEK scientists recently hooked up a new cavity tuning system to the various cavities in the so-called cavity-tuner zoo at KEK. This zoo, comprising eight superconducting radiofrequency cavities fabricated by four different vendors from three different regions, was the testing ground for a new development in what is called Lorentz force detuning (LFD) compensation.
