14th International Conference on RF Superconductivity

2009 International Conference on RF Superconductivity, Berlin/Dresden, September 20-25, 2009.

The 14th International Conference on RF Superconductivity (SRF2009) was held Sept. 20-25, 2009 at the dbb Forum in Berlin, within walking distance of the famed Checkpoint Charlie. The Conference will be hosted by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (formerly BESSY) and the Forschungszentrum Dresden-Rossendorf.
Impressive advances in superconducting RF science and technology over the last three decades are responsible for a dramatic increase of SRF installations world-wide. RF superconductivity now is the key technology of many accelerators for particle physics, nuclear physics and, increasingly, light sources. The European Free-Electron Laser and the recently commissioned Spallation Neutron Source are exciting examples of the various applications of SRF.

Continuing the successful tradition of 13 previous workshops, SRF 2009 covered the latest advances in the science, technology, and applications of superconducting RF. The program consisted of invited review talks, poster sessions and "hot-topic" discussion sessions. A special emphasis was placed on providing a forum for student researchers to present their results.
Special tutorials session was held from Sept. 17-19 in Dresden. The tutorials were designed to provide an in-depth overview of SRF related subjects for scientists and engineers new to the field, or those who simply want a refresher.
