FLASH (Free Electron Laser in Hamburg ) is a user facility for a high intensity
VUV-light source . The radiation wavelength is tunable in the range from about 40 to
13 nm by changing the electron beam energy from 450 to 700 MeV. The accelerator is
also a test facility for the European XFEL (X-ray Free Electron Laser) to be built in
Hamburg  and the project study ILC (International Linear Collider) . The
superconducting TESLA technology is tested at this facility, together with other
22.214.171.124 The TESLA cavity
The TESLA cavities are used for acceleration in FLASH and the XFEL. The ILC
will have similar accelerating structures. The TESLA cavities are superconducting 9-
cell 1 m long structures (see Figure 1). A 1.3 GHz wave is input through a power
coupler. Two HOM (Higher Order Modes) couplers extract energy from the resonant
fields excited by the electron beams .
