Author Affiliations +
The paper describes efforts of four institutions which are engaged in the realization of the Work Package 4 (Thin Film Cavity Production) of the Joint Research Activity (JRA-1) within a frame of the Coordinated Accelerator Research in Europe (CARE) program. JRA-1 is aimed at developing superconducting RF technology, mainly methods for producing superconducting Nb coated copper cavities which might ensure higher accelerating fields, lower RF losses and considerable reduction of costs, as compared with the present state of art. WP4 is thus focused on the development of a new method to produce thin Nb-coatings by means of arc discharges performed under ultra-high vacuum (UHV) conditions.
