  Nitrogen doping experiments in single-cell and 3-cell niobium cavities were carried out at KEK. After annealing at 800 deg C for 3 hours, pure nitrogen gas with a pressure of 3 Pa for 20 minutes and 3 minutes were introduced for doping in a furnace in J-PARC, respectively. Removing surface in 5 um and 20 um by electropolishing were performed prior to the vertical tests, respectively. Increases of a quality factor at 2K and reduction of the BCS resistance with respect to an accelerating gradient were observed in both cavities.

  Nitrogen infusion (N-infusion) is new surface treatment technique for niobium SRF (Superconducting RF) cavities. After cooling down from 800 degree C heat treatment, a vacuum furnace and cavities are kept 120 degree C, 48 hours with about 3 Pa Nitrogen. Improvement of Q-value and accelerating gradient is expected. We used J-PARC furnace, since N-infusion procedure requires clean vacuum furnace. It has a cryo-pump and turbo molecular pumps and its vacuum system is oil-free system. Six times of N-infusion tests were carried out, while changing vacuum condition, N-infusion temperature, Nitrogen pressure, niobium material and so on. Niobium caps were mounted on cavities to avoid contaminations on inner surfaces. Some of trials were successful and vertical test results showed improvement of Q-values and accelerating gradient. However, some of them were not. Most of bad cases showed degradation of Q-values above 5 MV/m. Details of heat treatment procedure including N-infusion and vertical test results are shown in this presentation.

  KEK has conducted a survey to select an optimum ceramic after withdrawal by a domestic manufacturing company two years ago. For this selection, there are four important items on the properties of ceramic; that is, relative permittivity, dielectric loss tangent, surface and volume resistance, and secondary electron emission coefficient. For measurements of these parameters, five kinds of ceramic samples supplied from three companies were measured using three kinds of measurement systems. For measurement of secondary electron emission, scanning electron microscope (SEM) with beam blanking system was used. On the other hand, residual resistivity ratio (RRR) for copper plating, which is the most important item for quality control, has also been carried out while changing plating thickness and acid temperature. In this report, the recent results for these studies will be presented in detailed.
