John Carwardine, Nick Walker
This presentation will describe the TTF/FLASH Full Beam Loading Studies Program at DESY, otherwise known as The 9mA Studies Program, which has the primary goal of demonstrating reliable operation of a superconducting linac with beam conditions close to those of the ILC and at accelerating gradients approaching quench limits. Additional goals include demonstration of ILC energy stability and of assessing requirements for RF power overhead. We will also discuss the 9mA program in the context of the goals of the Cryomodule String Test described in Sections 3.1, 3.2, and 4.2 in the GDE R&D Plan v3.

This talk gives a fairly complete summary of TTF/FLASH 9mA studies program. It describes the scope and rationale for the program, the international collaboration, main accomplishments studies results up to December 2008, and future planning.
D. Kostin (Jan 2009)
This talk from the 9mA mini workshop describes measured performance of the six cryomodules and 48 cavities presently installed in the FLASH linac. Also described is Module-8 cryomodule that will be installed in the FLASH linac during a major upgrade scheduled to start in September 2009.
S. Choroba (Jan 2009)
Gives a brief description of the high level RF distribution system at FLASH and some associated RF power and limits.
J. Carwardine, N. Walker (Jan 2009)
Machine studies for May and September 2008 were summarized in the FLASH seminar presentation (Reference 1). This report covers the subsequent January 2009 studies
This was a planning workshop in anticipation of a 1-2 week dedicated studies period in September of this year. The agenda includes status reports on many of the FLASH technical systems related to the 9mA studies program.
