    11 MV/m : check!

    Major milestone for superconducting cavity of the MYRRHA accelerator!

    The superconducting single-spoke cavities are the key components of the MINERVA high power proton linear accelerator. Operating at -271.15°C (just 2 Celsius above absolute zero temperature), 60 of them will boost the beam energy from 16.6 MeV (the output energy of the normal conducting injector) to 100 MeV.
