报告题目：Power Coupler for a Superconducting Cavity Resonator
演讲人：Thomas T. Y. Wong（伊利诺工学院教授）
A coaxial power coupler for a superconducting multicell cavity resonator at 3.9 GHz has been developed. The cavity is intended to be employed as an accelerator to provide enhanced electron beam quality in a free-electron laser. Due to cryogenic, high vacuum and high power requirements, special provisions for two windows and two bellows were implemented. A transition from rectangular waveguide to a coaxial line is employed to receive the power from the microwave source. The windows and bellows are embedded with the coaxial structure, which is interfaced with the cavity resonator by a probe arrangement. Simulation tool was employed to optimize the coupler structure for low reflection of incident power and dissipation while restraining the field at critical locations to prevent material breakdown. Procedures for testing the coupler on its own and integrated with the superconducting cavity are described and the measurement results are presented. The coupler-cavity assembly was tested to exceed the requirement of 9.3 kW input power and axial field intensity of 14.5 MV/m in the cavity. Coupler return loss and insertion loss were estimated to be 21 dB and 0.2 dB, respectively.
