Who I am: I am an electronic and telecommunications engineer from the University of Ferrara. I try to learn something new from every experience because I truly believe there is always room for self-improvement, both personally and professionally. I also love physics and FermiLab is the right place to jump in this wonderful world.
Report: Novel RF Tuning Scheme for Jacketed Multi-Cell SRF Cavities using Pressurized Balloons
Research: SRF cavities have a huge impact in the particle accelerator science because of their ultra-low loss that extremely enhances their efficiency in accelerating particle beams. The goal of the present project is to provide a solution for dressed SRF cavities that have field flatness issue of being lower than what is acceptable for cryomodule assembly. This helps to minimize the impact of a production failure in a large scale leading project such as PIP-II and LCLS-II from cost and scheduling standpoints. A tuning procedure for dressed multi-cell cavities capable of controlling the deformation of each single cell will be developed. Thus, we will have more control of the field flatness and final resonant frequency even for a dressed cavity.
