The ATLAS (Argonne Tandem Linear Accelerator System) superconducting cavities use a pneumatic system to maintain the cavity eigenfrequency at the master oscillator frequency [1]. The present pneumatic slow tuner has a limitation in the tuning slew rates. For some resonators, the frequency slew rate is as low as 30 Hz/sec. The total tuning range for ATLAS… CONTINUE READING
