CT on an Electron GUN

1024 773 XRAY-LAB | Industrial X-ray analysis & 3D computed tomography (CT)

X-ray tomography has been established as a nondestructive three-dimensional analysis tool, commercially offered by industrial vendors. Typical applications cover shape control and failure detection (voids, cracks) deep inside of complicated bulk pieces like engine blocks, bearings, turbine blades etc.. We evaluated the applicability of the process for superconducting radio frequency cavities, in particular a generic 1.3 GHz single test cell cavity, the 1.4-cell 1.3 GHz bERLinPro electron gun cavity and the 1.5 GHz VSR-1-cell-prototype cavity. The gun cavity experienced severe shape modifications during its tuning process and features a complicated internal stiffening construction. Read more ….
