  • Funder: UKRI Project Code: 100360
    Funder Contribution: 675,732 GBP

    Abstracts are not currently available in GtR for all funded research. This is normally because the abstract was not required at the time of proposal submission, but may be because it included sensitive information such as personal details.

    Funder Contribution: 445,277 GBP

    R&D on manufacturing technologies and new materials is boosting economy in an increasingly sustainable way. In this context, the appearance of HSS triggered new benefits. Of interest to this project is the mass production of a new generation of efficient vehicles as a result of reduced weight. The barrier preventing its commercialisation is the joining of car frame components without compromising the soundness of the structure. The goal of this project is to overcome such a barrier with the synergy of a combined effort of a world leader in car manufacturing, car suppliers, and a world leader in joining technologies. The project aims to push the state of the art in joining HSS materials and to implement the findings in serial production tests. Results of this project will activate a supply chain culminating in the mass commercialisation of a new electric vehicle .

    The surface treatment of niobium cavities has been shown to significantly influence the efficiency of high power, superconducting particle accelerators. Heat treatment and surface preparation processes that deposit nitrogen in the near-surface region of cavities can greatly improve machine efficiency and hence drive down the cost of performing research. An international research consortium is advancing the science of surface preparation for niobium cavities. The United Kingdom's academic institutes and businesses are not currently active in this forum. Knowledge sharing on developments in particle accelerator efficiency is therefore not guaranteed. As part of a project to support the US-led Proton Improvement Plan - Phase 2 (PIP-II), the UK is developing a supply chain for superconducting cavities. The scope of supply does not extend to the surface treatment of these cavities. The organisations involved are Daresbury Laboratory (within STFC-UKRI) and an industrial consortium led by The Welding Institute (TWI). The Proton Improvement Plan is part of a larger project to create Long Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF) in support of the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE). Benefits to science and industry of the UK's involvement in this broad initiative are captured in the outline business case for LBNF-DUNE. This proposal seeks to augment the scientific and economic benefits introduced in the LNBF-DUNE business case by developing processing techniques in the UK for superconducting accelerating cavities. Specifically, this proposal requests investment in two lines of scientific development: 1. nitrogen doping; and 2. chemical polishing to improve cavity efficiency. Within the work to develop chemical polishing techniques, will be the investigation of alternative polishing methods to reduce hazards associated with the current chemical procedures.
