  abstract     = {{Next-generation, thin-film surfaces employing Nb₃Sn, NbN, NbTiN, and other compound superconductors are destined to allow reaching superior RF performance levels in SRF cavities. Optimized, advanced deposition processes are required to enable high-quality films of such materials on large and complex-shaped cavities. For this purpose, Cornell University is developing a remote plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition (CVD) system that facilitates coating on complicated geometries with a high deposition rate. This system is based on a high-temperature tube furnace with a clean vacuum and furnace loading system. The use of plasma alongside reacting precursors will significantly reduce the required processing temperature and promote precursor decomposition. The system can also be used for annealing cavities after the CVD process to improve the surface layer. The chlorine precursors have the potential to be corrosive to the equipment and pose specific safety concerns. A MATLAB GUI has been developed to control and monitor the CVD system at Cornell.}},
