  • The heart of an accelerator is a superconducting radio-frequency (RF) linac, comprised of about 16,000 superconducting niobium cavities.
  • The cavities are put into cryomodules in order to keep them cool.
  • Luminosity depends on repetition rate, number of particles per bunch, and beam dimensions.
