  The performance of superconducting radio frequency (SRF) niobium (Nb) cavities strongly depends on final surface condition. Therefore the surface preparation of these SRF cavities often becomes critical. The preparation of surface includes two steps; surface chemistry (in order to get a smooth surface) and cleaning/rinsing (in order to remove contaminants left after the surface chemistry). As high pressure rinsing (HPR) with ultra pure water (UPW) is most commonly used surface cleaning method after the surface chemistry, it's very interesting to characterize the Nb surfaces after HPR. Results of our surface characterization done by XPS (x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy) with depth profiling show the presence of a thicker oxide surface characterization results show the presence of a thicker oxide layer at Nb surface as an outcome of HPR. In this article, we report the production of oxide layer (FWHM thickness) based on different conditions such as the pressures and doses.

  The S1-Global collaboration (scope and plans presented at Linac10) ended successfully in 2011. In the S1-Global experiment several variants of ILC components (e.g. cavities, tuners, modules, couplers) proposed by all SCRF collaborators worldwide have been extensively tested and their performances compared, in order to build consensus for the technical choices towards the ILC TDR and to develop further the concept of plug-compatible components for ILC. The experiment has been carried at KEK with contribution of hardware and manpower from all collaborators.
