The SRF conference series are distinctively characterized with the focus on making good use of the event to train students. Prior to the conference, tutorial sessions will be held, which are aimed at giving students general but significant overview of subjects on SRF and the scientists and engineers newly taping into the field may also gain some in-depth insights into SRF. Besides, student poster session and competition are also included during the conference, which will be judged by international SRF experts. And a sub-set of students will be qualified for attending the invited orals and will be the candidates for the winners of the SRF2017 top young researcher awards.
Following tradition, SRF2017 tutorial sessions will be held prior to the conference from Jul. 13-15 at the Institute of Modern Physics (IMP), Chinese Academy of Science. The tutorials are designed to provide an in-depth overview of SRF related subjects for students as well as scientists and engineers new to the field. Experts in the SRF global community will present lectures on a wide range of topics related to SRF. Lunch and coffee breaks will be provided for speakers and students. In addition, there will be a Saturday afternoon social event to mark the end of the tutorial sessions and to promote discussion and the free exchange of ideas between students and experts.
The following main topics will be treated during the tutorials sessions:
Basic Principles of RF Superconductivity
Cavity design and fabrication (Elliptical and non-elliptical)
Ancillaries design and fabrication (LLRF, Tuning Systems, High-Power and HOM Couplers,…)
Cavity testing and diagnostics
Operation of cavities with beam
Limits in cavity performance (origin, material properties, processing, QA…)
Future SRF Materials: alternatives to bulk niobium
