Title High gradient experiments in electropolished TESLA multi-cell cavities
Type Talk high gradient
Abstract Several nine-cell cavities of the TESLA type have been  electropolished at Nomura Plating in collaboration with KEK  and DESY. Four cavities have achieved gradients of 35 MV/m  and quality factors exceeding the TESLA specification of a  Qo=5x10 9 in the continuous wave vertical test. Up to now,  one cavity was equipped with a helium tank and a high power  coupler. In the horizontal high power pulsed test stand  (CHECHIA) the excellent performance was maintained. The use  of piezo actuators for Lorentz-force compensation was  successfully demonstrated. Multipacting was observed around  20 MV/m, but could be processed easily. The cavity was  operated for more than 600 hours at 35 MV/m and has shown no  sign of degradation. Further high gradient tests are under  preparation.
