Euclid hosted collaborators from the  TESLA Technology Collaboration (TTC) on 7 December at our Bolingbrook R&D and Manufacturing facility. Visitors from KEK (Japan), CERN, Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin (HZB), Jefferson lab, Brookhaven National Lab, Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB – Michigan State University) came to discuss developments, collaborations and strategies with Euclid researchers as well as see our superconducting rf (SRF) accelerator technologies in action. Euclid’s Fast Ferroelectric Tuner, Conduction cooled SRF Photogun, Coldspray coating, and Traveling Wave SRF cavities were the primary topics carried over from the TTC meeting.

TESLA Technology Collaboration (TTC)  was established 30 years ago and was hosted this year by Fermilab 6-9 December. The TTC mission is to advance superconducting RF (SRF) accelerator R & D and related accelerator studies across the broad diversity of scientific applications, and to keep open and provide a bridge for communication and sharing of ideas, developments, and testing across associated projects. To this end, the Collaboration supports and encourages free and open exchange of scientific and technical knowledge, expertise, engineering designs, and equipment.
