ULVAC, Inc. Announces Development of Niobium Material of High Purity for Superconducting Accelerators

ULVAC, Inc. announced that it has developed niobium material of high purity for superconducting accelerators and will start selling the material in July. Superconducting accelerators are expected to be used in a wide variety of areas, including researching the origin of the universe by International Linear Colliders (ILC) in particle physics, analyzing the structure of proteins in medicine, and partitioning and transmuting of high-level radioactive waste using nuclear transmutation (ADS: Accelerator Driven System) in environmental and energy sciences. Superconducting accelerators are used to accelerate charged particles (such as electrons, positrons, protons and ionized atoms). Niobium (Nb), which becomes superconductive at the high temperature (9.25 K) among pure metals, is used as material for accelerating cavities. Niobium material for accelerating cavities must have a Residual Resistance Ratio (RRR) that exceeds 250. To increase the purity of niobium, ULVAC optimized multiple conditions, including the selection of raw materials, the degree of vacuum, and melting speed by using a 600 kW EB melting furnace that was newly constructed at its group company ULVAC Tohoku, Inc. (Hachinohe, Aomori), thereby successfully producing niobium ingots with an RRR exceeding 250. They requested the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK) - an inter-university research institution with which they conduct joint research - to manufacture a single-cell accelerating cavity by using plates produced from these ingots and to conduct an electric field performance test. Consequently, they achieved a maximum accelerating electric field gradient of 41 MV/m (performance required for ILCs: at least 35 MV/m). Characteristics are High-purity niobium ingots with an RRR exceeding 250 manufactured at ULVAC's in-house facilities; Material with an electric field gradient of 41 MV/m; Integrated production of plates, bars, and tubes from niobium ingots; and Seamless tubes and other processed products also available.
