This conference will provide a stimulating forum for scientists, engineers, students, and industrial partners to present and discuss the latest developments in SRF science, technology, and applications. The conference will follow the traditional format of the SRF conference series. There are plenary invited oral sessions Monday (6/26) – Friday (6/30) morning, as well as poster sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evening. A student poster session is planned for Sunday (6/25) evening in parallel to the reception. In contrast to the previous conferences, “Application Session“ will be newly added, and vendors will have a chance to present their R&D activities related to SRF technology. On Tuesday evening, a special feature of the SRF'23 will be a retrospective event with participation from senior SRF researchers who did the groundbreaking work that is the foundation for the present success of our field. It will be an excellent chance to learn the SRF history for the younger generation. The conference proper ends on Friday (6/30) and lunch and will be immediately followed by a bus to the campus of Michigan State University (MSU) for the tour of the FRIB, a heavy Ion SRF accelerator, the most powerful in the world.
As in previous conferences, prior to the conference, the special tutorial session related to SRF science and technology will be held on June 22-24 on the MSU campus. These sessions are designed to provide an in-depth overview of SRF related subjects for scientists and engineers new to the field, or those who simply want a refresher.
Topics to be covered at the SRF’23 include:
- Ongoing projects
- Future projects
- Operational experience and lessons learned
2) Fundamental research and development
- High-quality factors/high gradients
- New materials beyond niobium
- Film-coated copper cavities; multi-layer films
3) SRF Technology
- Nb material
- Cavity design/fabrication/preparation/tuning
- Input couplers, higher-order mode couplers
- Low-level RF control/microphonics
- RF sources
- SRF technology for medical uses
- Other new applications
- Vendor R&D
We are developing the detailed program for SRF’23 now. The status will be updated on this web site.
