A polyhedral superconducting cavity is being developed for possible use in linac colliders. In side view it has the contour of a Tesla-type multi-cell string. The surfaces of the cavity are formed by bonding flat foils to solid copper wedge-shaped segments, so that the end view is a polyhedron of such segments. Several features of this structure make it interesting for linac colliders: the cavity segments are totally open for cleaning, polishing, and inspection until the final assembly step; narrow slot gaps at the boundaries between segments strongly suppress all deflecting modes without penalty to the accelerating mode; the solid copper substrate accommodates cooling channels and eliminates the need for an immersion cryostat; and the open geometry makes it possible to utilize advanced superconductors (e.g. multi-layer Nb/Nb3Sn, YBCO, MgB2) on the cavity surface, opening the possibility of higher gradients.
