Abstract

Niobium surface modification dynamics treated by cluster ion irradiation was studied based on atomistic and mesoscopic simulation methods and the results were compared to experiments. A surface smoothening method was proposed consisting of a treatment of the Nb cavity surfaces by accelerated gas (argon) cluster ion beams (GCIB) that is capable of reducing the surface roughness up to the theoretical limit.
