Accelerator design concept for future neutrino facilities
The issue of the RF breakdown in the magnetic field is addressed in the so-called open cavity cooling channel lattice with magnetic coils in the irises of the RF cavities.
Six-Dimensional Cooling Simulations for the Muon Collider
The concept itself consists of two parts: a) moving the solenoidal coils from over the RF cavities into the irises; and b) shaping the RF cavities such that the walls of the cavities are predominantly parallel to the magnetic field lines (see Fig. 5), which hopefully solves the problem of the breakdown.
Six-Dimensional Cooling Simulations for the Muon Collider
The new cooling ring has 12 cells with three RF cavities in each and four solenoidal coils in the irises.
Six-Dimensional Cooling Simulations for the Muon Collider
Figures 7–9 illustrate the difference between field components for the original RFOFO design and the new design with coils in irises.

The disadvantage of the longer hz is a lower cell-to-cell coupling factor kcc. Irises are always below cut-off frequency for the accelerating mode, therefore their elongation causes enhanced decay of e-m fields in these regions.
Superconducting elliptical cavities
It required irises in the beam path, careful dumping of the reflected fields from the photodiodes, dumping of reflected fields from AR coatings and transmitted fields through high-reflectivity (HR) mirrors and screens to isolate scattered light from different sections of the experiment.
