From turkeys to turn-keys


A superconducting radio-frequency accelerator cavity is mounted and connected to a cryocooler, cooling the cavity without the use of liquid helium. This new device could make it easier to produce high-average-power electron beams for industrial applications. Photo: Marty Murphy

The Illinois Accelerator Research Center (IARC) at Fermilab is on a mission to build a high-power, compact, superconducting electron beam accelerator that will serve all of these purposes.
