Contribute to the advancement of
conventional and superconducting Radio Frequency technology, from
conceptualization through commissioning of components and assemblies,
to be used in all aspects of beam acceleration, handling and detection.
Work includes basic beam dynamic simulation, establishment of design
requirements, engineering specifications, design and engineering to
develop ‘build-to-print’ packages for procurement,
development of prototypes, definition of work process control
procedures, development of inspection criteria and fabrication
procedures, and providing fabrication and production oversight.
The department’s efforts will
include follow-up for completed devices such as support of testing and
analysis of test data in order to measure, characterize and optimize
the performance of RF devices, and support of the installation and
commissioning of such devices. It will also include basic material
research and development, including the establishment of reliable and
repeatable chemical processing recipes and procedures to achieve
desired RF cavity accelerating gradients.
