|dc.description.abstract||A superconducting energy-recovery linac (ERL) is under construction at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) to serve as a test bed for an application to upgrades of the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). The damping of higher-order modes in the superconducting five-cell cavity is of paramount importance and represents the topic of this paper. Achieving the damping by the exclusive use of two ferrite absorbers and the adoption of a space-saving step instead of the conventional taper are part of the exploratory study. Absorber properties which are portable to simulation programs for the ERL cavity have been obtained by measuring the absorber as a ferrite-loaded pill-box cavity. Measured and simulated results for the lowest dipole modes in the prototype copper cavity with one absorber are discussed. First room-temperature measurements of the fully assembled niobium cavity string are presented which confirm the effective damping of higher-order modes by the ferrite absorbers, and which give credibility to the simulated R over Q's in the ERL.||ko|
