Scientific Program

The 8th Thin films and new ideas for SRF Workshop will be held from Monday, October 8, to Wednesday, October 10. The programme will be soon available.
  • Perspective of thin film cavities in international projects

  • Theoretical modelling of RF behavior

    Q-drop mechanism in thin films, SRF performance enhancement with mono- and multilayered superconductors

  • Nb thin film technology

    Energetic condensation from highly ionized plasmas (HiPIMS, vacuum arc deposition, ECR plasma deposition …), conventional PVD…

  • CVD and ALD for SRF materials

  • Other superconducting materials beyond niobium

    Nb3Sn, MgB2 and other high-Tc superconductors (oxypnictides, FeSe monolayer…)

  • Advanced preparation of substrates and atmospheric plasmas

  • Advances in cavity substrate fabrication

    Electroplating, seamless cavities, 3D-manufacturing…
