Business and information technology are highly compatible curriculum partners for academic study, providing a multitude of opportunities for enterprise and entrepreneurship. However, training students to successfully operate in today's international, fast-moving technology world requires more than merely curricula encompassing such topics. Appropriate(More)
This paper reviews the requirements and current status of cathodes for accelerator applications, and proposes a research and development plan for advancing cathode technology. Accelerator cathodes need to have long operational lifetimes and produce electron beams with a very low emittance. The two principal emission processes to be considered are thermionic(More)
We report on the status of an electron RF-gun made of two superconductors: niobium and lead. The presented design combines the advantages of the RF performance of bulk niobium superconducting cavities and the reasonably high quantum efficiency of lead, as compared to other superconducting metals. The concept, mentioned in a previous paper, follows the(More)
We report on the progress and status of an electron RF-gun * made of two superconductors: niobium and lead [1]. The presented design combines the advantages of the RF performance of bulk niobium superconducting cavities and the reasonably high quantum efficiency of lead. The design of RF-gun and performance of 3 test cavities without and with the emitting(More)
