AB - A recent study to optimise the coating of thin-film Nb3Sn cavities has resulted in coating procedures that can fabricate 1.3 GHz cavities capable of reproducibly achieving fields of >16 MV/m with record high Qs >10¹⁰ at 4.2 K. However, the performance of these next generation SRF cavities is as yet well below the theoretical maximum performance expected of Nb3Sn, thus giving ample room for further advancements. Current measurements strongly suggest that the current limits are due to local defects and irregularities in the coated surface. In this paper we analyse, using methods including SEM/EDS, TEM, XRD and EBSD, the surface of both sample coupons and cavity cut-outs, with a view to identifying and understanding the origin of surface non-uniformities that would lead to increased surface resistance and cavity quench.
