Niobium cavities are important parts of the integrated NC/SC high-power linacs. Over the years, researchers in several countries have tested various cavity shapes. They concluded that elliptically shaped cells are the most appropriate shape for superconducting cavities. The need for very clean surfaces lead to the use of a buffered chemical polishing produce for surface cleaning to get good performance of the cavities. The second phase has resulted in an experimental setup of a fluid flow experiment with experimentation to be completed in the third year. Some of these results were presented at American Nuclear Society, Student Conference April 2-5, 2003. Other experimental activities include the evaluation of a vacuum system and various vacuum equipment purchases and modifications. An optimization code for a five-cell niobium cavity based on resonant frequency and mode number was developed and presented at the 2003 ANS conference in San Diego.
