In science:

Additional tests were done on the second of the two single-cell cavities while commissioning the facilities at NSCL for etching, high-pressure rinsing, clean assembly, RF testing, and helium processing of superconducting cavities.
Status Report on Multi-Cell Superconducting Cavity Development for Medium-Velocity Beams
The final preparation steps were etching of an additional 60 mm from the inner surface and high-pressure rinsing with ultra-pure water in a clean room to remove particulates from the inside surface of the cavity.
Status Report on Multi-Cell Superconducting Cavity Development for Medium-Velocity Beams
The second cavity was etched to remove 150 mm and rinsed with the high-pressure water; it was not fired.
Status Report on Multi-Cell Superconducting Cavity Development for Medium-Velocity Beams
In between tests, the cavity was etched again to remove another 50 mm from the inner surface and the high-pressure water rinsing was repeated.
Status Report on Multi-Cell Superconducting Cavity Development for Medium-Velocity Beams
The final filter on the highpressure rinsing system (between the pump and the nozzle) was temporarily unavailable at the time of this rinse.
Status Report on Multi-Cell Superconducting Cavity Development for Medium-Velocity Beams
Thus the difference between the September 2002 and January 2003 tests could be due to particulate contamination during the highpressure rinse without the final filter.
Status Report on Multi-Cell Superconducting Cavity Development for Medium-Velocity Beams
In preparation for a second RF test, another 150 mm was removed from the inner surface, and the high-pressure rinse was repeated.
Status Report on Multi-Cell Superconducting Cavity Development for Medium-Velocity Beams
After grinding, the cavity was etched and rinsed again. A second RF test was done in July 2003. A field level of E p = 19 MV/m was reached in steady state (see Figure 6a, squares). A higher field ( E p = 23 MV/m) could be reached with modulated RF (see Figure 6a, diamonds).
