Title PERFORMANCE OF THE 3RD HARMONIC SUPERCONDUCTING CAVITY AT ELETTRA
Type Poster operating experience
Abstract A superconducting cavity designed to operate at ELETTRA at the third harmonic of the main RF frequency, 1.5 GHz, has been constructed in the frame of the SUPER-3HC collaboration with CEA, SLS and CERN. The 2-cells Nb-Cu cavity, derived from the SOLEIL design, was installed on the ELETTRA storage ring during the summer 2002 shutdown. After a commissioning period it was operated for the first time during user shifts in February 2003. Activation of the 3rd harmonic cavity allows to stabilize longitudinally the beam at 2.0 GeV, 300 mA, due to the Landau damping induced by the cavity. At the same time the beam lifetime is increased by about a factor 2. The cavity is now routinely operated during user shifts at 2.0 GeV. We will discuss the performance of the cavity and of the cryogenic plant along with the first results of the beam-cavity interaction studies.
