Operations at 4 K instead of 2 K have the potential to reduce the operational cost of an SRF linac by a factor of 3, if the cavity quality factor can be maintained. Cavities coated with Nb3Sn have been shown to achieve the accelerating gradients above 10 MV/m with a quality factor around 10¹⁰ at 4 K. Because such performance is already pertinent for CEBAF injector cryomodule, we are working to extend these results to CEBAF accelerator cavities envisioning coating of two CEBAF 5-cell cavities
