Tim Noakes gave an overview of the new surface preparation and analysis infrastructure recently implemented at Daresbury, which will support the development of high performance metallic photocathodes.
The meeting also gave participants the opportunity to witness activities ongoing at CEA Saclay, such as the XFEL cryomodule delivery, ESS cryomodule development and SRF preparation infrastructure.
