Tumbling opens possibilities

| 3 March 2011 A Fermilab team places water and pebble-like materials in a niobium accelerating cavity and spins it around like a carnival ride. As they do, they hope to perfect the recipe for achieving not only a high gradient, but a mirror-like finish every time. Category: Uncategorized | Tagged:

From symmetrybreaking: Tevatron to shut down at end of FY2011

13 January 2011 Today we received the news that we will not receive funding for the proposed Tevatron extension and consequently the Tevatron will close at the end of FY2011 as was previously planned. The present budgetary climate did not permit DOE to secure the additional funds needed to run the Tevatron for three more years as recommended by the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel.

From Fermilab Today: Fermilab begins operation of first SRF cryomodule

| 9 December 2010 Years of effort by more than 100 staff members at Fermilab have led to the cooldown of Cryomodule 1 at the laboratory's SRF Accelerator Test Facility. At 11 a.m. on Nov. 22, liquid helium flowed through CM1, cooling it to 2 Kelvin (-271° C). Category: Around the World | Tagged: , ,

From Fermilab Today: Introducing the ICPA: The right tool for the right job

24 November 2010 Developing and improving superconducting radio-frequency technology is an important goal for Fermilab. SRF technology allows us to conceive and plan for future accelerators, such as Project X, the ILC or the Muon Collider, or for energy production applications such as Accelerator Driven Systems. One thing that will help this goal is a new facility that we will start up next year in the Technical Division, named the Integrated Cavity Processing Apparatus.

“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.
