Title Integration, commissioning and cryogenics performance of the ERL cryomodule installed on ALICE-ERL facility at STFC Daresbury Laboratory, UK
Abstract On successful completion of the assembly and preliminary testing of an optimised SRF cryomodule, being developed under international collaboration, for application on ERL accelerators, which is being developed through an international collaboration, the cryomodule has been installed on the 35 MeV ALICE (Accelerators and Lasers in Combined Experiments) Energy Recovery Linac (ERL) facility at STFC Daresbury Laboratory. Existing cryogenic infrastructure has a capacity to deliver approximately 120 W cooling power at 2 K, but the HOM (Higher Order Mode) absorbers, the thermal intercepts for the high power RF couplers and the radiation shield in the cryomodule are designed to be cooled with gaseous helium instead of liquid nitrogen. As a result the cryogenic infrastructure for ALICE had to be modified to meet these additional requirements. This paper, presents an experience with the integration and cryogenic commissioning with some initial results.
