Call for Abstracts

  • Opening day
  • Submission deadline

The 9th International Workshop on "Thin films applied to Superconducting RF: Pushing the limits of RF Superconductivity" will be hosted virtually by Jefferson Lab. The workshop format will be composed of oral contributions and panel discussions.
The abstract submission will be open from July 15, 2022. The deadline for submitting your abstract is September 8, 2022.

All proposed contributions to TFSRF22 should be submitted via the Indico form linked on this page. All contributions will be in the form of oral presentations.
Please note that there will not be any paper proceedings or posters at this workshop.
Abstract format:
The total length of the abstract including spaces is limited to 2000 characters. Title, author list and affiliations are provided separately.
Corresponding author:
Please verify the single corresponding author name and e-mail address.
Workshop topics:
Contributions are solicited for this event describing work relevant and significant in the development of superconducting thin film and structures applied to SRF and related fields.
When submitting your abstract, please choose from one of the following topics:

- Perspective of SRF thin film developments in international projects

- Theoretical modelling of RF behavior
Q-drop mechanism in thin films, SRF performance enhancement with mono- and multilayered superconductors

- Nb thin film technology
Conventional PVD, energetic condensation from highly ionized plasmas (HiPIMS, Arc Deposition, ECR plasma deposition …), CVD...

- Beyond Nb: Alternate materials and mulilayer structures
B1 compounds (NbN, NbTiN...), A15 materials (Nb3Sn, V3Si, …), MgB2 and other high-Tc superconductors (oxypnictides, FeSe monolayer…), multilayer and nano-engineered structures
RF and material characterization for SRF films

-Advanced substrates
Surface cleaning, atmospheric plasmas; cavity substrate fabrication (electroplating, seamless cavities, 3D-manufacturing…)

- Applications beyond SRF:quantum and devices

Acceptance notification:
Acceptance notifications with an oral presentation guide will be sent to the submitters no later than Friday, September 9, 2022.
Please note that you will receive a confirmation email regarding your submission typically within a week of your abstract submission.
Should you not receive such a confirmation email, please send an e-mail to with subject "TFSRF2022 Abstract submission failed".
