Take two for cryomodule 2

| 11 July 2013 With the repair and reinstallation of the cryomodule known as CM2, Fermilab researchers are back on the road towards achieving the International Linear Collider’s R&D “S1” goal: operating a cryomodule at ILC gradient specifications.

S1-Global – a plug-compatible ILC demonstration experiment

| 18 October 2012 The S1-Global experiment was conceived to demonstrate the radiofrequency (RF) operation of an ILC cryomodule with an average accelerating gradient of 31.5 MV/metre. The project to build a segment of a superconducting linac system and test the string of superconducting RF cavities was carried out at KEK through a global collaboration. This experiment provided a significant and successful demonstration of the operation of eight nine-cell superconducting cavities and associated hardware components with components provided from laboratories around the world.
