News question: Know your cavity tuning techniques?

Quiz time: Show that you know about cavity tuning techniques!

Fermilab News at Work would like to congratulate Andy Hocker for winning last week’s quiz! The answer was: Cavities and cryomodules for PIP-II are being built in France, India, Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States. Thank you to everyone who participated!

A winner will be randomly selected from all lab employees and users who submit the correct answer to today’s question by noon today. The winner will be recognized in next week’s quiz and will be rewarded with a small token of recognition. Show off your knowledge of the news coming out of Fermilab.

This week’s question is:

What is the name of the new cavity tuning technique developed by Fermilab engineers Mohamed Hassan and Donato Passerelli? (Hint: See “Under pressure: balloons for particle acceleration.”)

Send your answer to by today, Aug. 29, at noon.

Good luck! We will announce the winner and answer next week.

Past winners are welcome to participate in the quiz each week. However, only one win per person will be recognized in any 30-day period.
