Nb₃Sn (Tc ~ 18.3 K and Hsh ~ 425 mT) is the front runner. However, tests of early Nb₃Sn-coated cavities encountered strong Q-slopes limiting the performance. Learnings from studies of coated materials related to cavity performance prompted significant changes to the coating process. It is now possible to routinely produce slope-free single-cell cavities having Q₀ ≥ 2×10¹⁰ at 4 K and > 4×10¹⁰ at 2 K up to the accelerating gradient in excess of 15 MV/m at its best. Obtaining similar results in five-cell cavities is a current goal to test them under an accelerator environment. This contribution discusses recent developments at Jefferson Lab.
