Description

  1. Vertical Test Cryostats: VTS-1 cryostat supports a device under test up to 2.74 m long, 0.6 m diameter, and 1,400 lbs. weight. VTS-2 and VTS-3 cryostats support a device under test up to 3.6 m long, 0.86 m diameter, and 2,400 lbs. weight. The cryostats are configured to operate with a saturated helium bath cooling, 1.4 K minimum temperature and maximum steady power dissipation of 250 W at 2.0K. The VTS cryostats are magnetically shielded and include a radiation shield lid. They are equipped with RF power systems, DAQ Systems, Thermometry, and the Cryostat Control System. Presently the RF power system supports frequencies of 325 MHz, 650 MHz, and 1.3 GHz.
  2. Dressed Cavity Test Facility (MDB): Three test stands for fully dressed SRF cavities at temperatures down to 2 K with pulsed or CW RF. High gradient 1300 MHz cavities with pulsed RF, CW . 325 MHz spoke resonators with CW or pulsed RF. CW test of 650 MHz elliptical cavities (under construction). 4 Shielded reconfigurable enclosures. 3 Ganged cryogenic refrigerators each capable of 600 W at 4 K. Large vacuum pump provides in excess of 100 W at 2 K.
