Abstract

A superconducting RF vertical test facility (VTF) has been constructed at Daresbury Laboratory for the testing of superconducting RF cavities at 2K. When fully operational, the facility will be capable of testing a 9-cell 1.3 GHz Tesla type cavity. The facility is initially to be configured to perform phase synchronisation experiments between a pair of single cell 3.9GHz ILC crab cavities. These experiments require the cavities to operate at the same frequency; therefore a tuning mechanism has been integrated into the system. The system is described, and data from the initial operation of the facility is presented.
