Title RF Coupler Tutorial
Type Talk  
Abstract RF couplers are used on superconducting cavities to deliver fundamental RF power for creating accelerating fields and to remove unwanted higher-order mode power for reducing emittance growth and cryogenic load.  RF couplers in superconducting applications present a number of interdisciplinary design challenges that need to be addressed, since poor performance in these devices can profoundly impact accelerator operations and the overall success of a major facility.  This talk will focus on critical design issues for fundamental and HOM power couplers, highlight a sampling of reliability-related problems observed in couplers, and discuss some design strategies for improving performance.
