Title Engineering Study of Crab Cavity HOM Couplers for LHC High Luminosity Upgrade
Abstract The LHC is planning to employ crab cavities for the high luminosity upgrade. Old Dominion University and SLAC National Laboratory are developing the crab cavity completed with the HOM damping couplers. The HOM couplers are coaxial type and perform over broad band up to 2 GHz. The amount of extracted power requires active cooling using liquid helium. The electromagnetic study has provided expected power dissipation on the coupler. Correlations between the fabrication tolerance and its damping performance have been studied and the results are providing guidelines on how to manufacture the HOM couplers. This paper summarizes the engineering studies; mechanical strength as a part of pressure system, thermal stability, and fabrication method to ensure the required tolerance.
