Fundamental power couplers for superconducting accelerator applications like the ILC are complicated RF transmission line assemblies due to their having to simultaneously accommodate demanding RF power, cryogenic, and cleanliness constraints. When these couplers are RF conditioned, the observed response is an aggregate of all the parts of the coupler and the specific features that dominate the conditioning response are unknown. To better understand and characterize RF conditioning phenomena toward improving performance and reducing conditioning time, a high-power coupler component test stand has been built at SLAC. Operating at 1.3 GHz, this test stand was designed to measure the conditioning behavior of select components of the TTFIII coupler independently, including outer-conductor bellows, diameter changes, copper plating and surface preparations, and cold window geometries and coatings. A description of the test stand, the measurement approach, and a summary of the results obtained are presented.
