Quench detection on a superconducting radio-frequency cavity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


We study quench detection in superconducting accelerator cavities cooled with He-II. A rigorous mathematical formula is derived to localize the quench position from dynamical data over a finite time interval at a second sound detector.
