Liquid helium-free SRF cavities could make industrial applications practical

Copper/Niobium/NiobiumTin cavity connected to the cryocooler. The building blocks of superconducting accelerators are superconducting radiofrequency (SRF) cavities made primarily from niobium that are combined in a vessel and bathed in liquid helium to reach superconducting temperatures. While a large liquid … Continue reading

Northwestern Researchers Develop a New Portable Neutron Detector

Researchers at Northwestern and Argonne National Laboratory have developed a new neutron detector that is both compact and effective. Traditionally, many pre-existing neutron detectors consist of a semiconducting part with a neutron-absorbing layer on top. For this new neutron detector, … Continue reading
