Assembly of HOM couplers on Super-3HC cryomodule in DAPNIA clean room, Orme des Merisiers site (Operator: Y. Gasser)
The superconducting cavity technology developed by DAPNIA/SACM applies to accelerators other than those used in nuclear or particle physics. This technology is particularly well-suited for the very high intensity electron beams needed to achieve the high luminosities required for physics experiments and has therefore been adopted for a large number of recent synchrotron radiation facilities. Superconducting cavities are used to accelerate the electron beam circulating in the accelerator ring so as to compensate the energy lost as synchrotron radiation in the course of each turn. However, they are also be used to eliminate certain instabilities in the beam and thereby increase its lifetime in the ring.
