"JLab Scientific and Technological Advances with Commonwealth of Virginia Universities"
The Continuous Electron Bean Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) at Jefferson Lab in Newport News was established by the Department of Energy as a result of the initiatives from the faculty of Physics at the University of Virginia. Initially the design called for room temperature copper accelerator structures. However, the first director of CEBAF chose Superconducting Radio Frequency (SRF) Technology for the acceleration of the high quality electron beams. This led to many world class scientific and technological advances at JLab including the core SRF and 2 K refrigeration systems. In this presentation I would like to narrate the development of single crystal large grain niobium technology for the benefit of SRF accelerator cavities including the Ganni 2 K refrigeration cycle for the efficient cooling of these accelerator structures. Further recent innovations and evolution of 10 - 50 MeV beam test facility, efficient design of cryomodules and compact THz sources are also discussed. In addition the plans of bringing all these scientific and technological advances for the benefit of the commonwealth of Virginia Universities under the umbrella of UVa are also explained.
