The acceleration with superconducting radio frequency cavities requires dedicated couplers to transfer energy from the radio frequency source to the beam. Simultaneously, higher order mode couplers are installed to effectively suppress parasitic modes. Therefore, the numerical eigenmode analysis based on real-valued variables is no longer suitable to describe the dissipative acceleration structure. At the Computational Electromagnetics Laboratory (TEMF) a robust parallel eigenmode solver to calculate the eigenmodes in the lossy acceleration structure is available. This eigenmode solver is based on complex-valued finite element analysis and utilizes basis functions up to the second order on curved tetrahedral elements to enable the high precision elliptical cavity simulations. The eigenmode solver has been applied to the TESLA 1.3 GHz accelerating cavity to determine the resonance frequency, the quality factor and the corresponding field distribution for all 192 eigenmodes up to the 5th dipole passband (3.12 GHz).
