World Wide Fundamental Power Coupler meeting #6.

The following topics will be discussed:

  • Design: maximum power per coupler ?
  • multi coupler per cavity ?
  • Construction: choice of material and of techniques of construction, coating
  • Series production: fabrication, cleaning, handling and assembly
  • Series production by industrials: modification of the processes, industrial alternative proposals, ...
  • Cleaning and assembly: which clean room is really needed ? For FPC alone? For FPC onto cavity?
  • Tests: prototype processes versus series processes, RF test boxes, amplifiers for tests
  • Statistics of couplers operated in accelerators
  • Diagnostics during R&D and prototyping, versus diagnostics during operation in accelerators
  • Degradation of characteristic over time of operation.

All participants can also list specific topics on which they would be interested of having some answers from others, or that could be interesting R&D for others.
