  • Power to the cryomodule

    Cryomodule 1, Fermilab’s test cryomodule for ILC-type accelerating cavities and superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) technology, was powered up as a complete, multi-cavity instrument earlier this month. Previously, researchers had delivered power only to the individual cavities inside it. Read more

  • MP9 and IB4 cavity vacuum furnace delivered

    The SRF Cavity Vacuum Furnace at MP9 was delivered in May 2011. It is sized to bake spoke resonator cavities and 650-MHz cavities. The SRF Cavity Vacuum Furnace at IB4 is being used since January 2011. It is sized to bake 9-cell 1.3-GHz SRF cavities at 800 deg C.

  • Fermilab constructs pioneering accelerator test facility

The new facility, which will occupy three buildings and host a 460-foot-long test accelerator, will be the first of its kind in the United States.

Construction of Fermilab’s Cryomodule Test Facility (left) is scheduled for completion later this year. The facility will house radiofrequency systems and a cryogenic plant, crucial components for testing superconducting radio-frequency cavities for the SRF accelerator test facility at the New Muon Lab.
