This allows to accelerate the Nb⁺ atoms towards substrates with small grazing angles of incidence to obtain a dense and defect-free Nb film. Samples reproducing the shape of a 1.3 GHz SRF cavity are coated by varying the timing of the substrate bias with respect to the main HiPIMS. The Nb film residual stress and estimations of the amount of trapped discharge gas (Kr) are also presented. The effect of applying a positive pulse after the main HIPIMS pulse on Nb/Cu samples coated in Ar is further explored. Crystallites size characterization is obtained with X-Ray Diffraction. First SRF properties by measurement of the critical temperature are provided. Preliminary results of Nb/Cu coatings of Cu samples reproducing the real geometry of the Wide Open Waveguide Crab cavity  are presented. PB - JACoW Publishing CP - Geneva, Switzerland ER -
