Title: Dislocation Substructures on the Functional Properties of Niobium for SRF Cavities, focusing on microstructural,microchemical, and electromagnetic characteristic for Florida State University.

Funding is being requested pursuant to a proposal that was submitted and reviewed through the Portfolio Analysis and Management System (PAMS). PAMS Proposal ID: 222686. Superconducting cavities are the integral part of many energy-efficient particle accelerators around the world. The current material of choice for superconducting cavities is niobium, which is the material with the highest transition temperature among pure metals. The performance of SRF cavities are influenced by the fabrication and processing steps. We plan to study the microstructural, microchemical and electromagnetic properties of Nb that are processed similar to the cavity processing steps to identify and mitigate the limiting factors to improve the performance of SRF cavities.
