  SARAF-phase 1 at SOREQ, with its single 6 half-wave resonators cryomodule, is the first high current, superconducting low-beta linac in operation and it is presently delivering cw proton beams in the mA range. A phase 2 is foreseen for this linac which will allow acceleration up to 40 MeV of 2 mA cw proton and deuteron beams. The project status, the operational experience and the future goals of SARAF should be described.

  Soreq NRC initiated the establishment of SARAF - Soreq Applied Research Accelerator Facility. SARAF is based on a continuous wave (CW), proton/deuteron RF superconducting linear accelerator with variable energy (5–40 MeV) and current (0.04-5 mA). RF power to each cavity is driven by a High Power Solid State Amplifiers. The paper outlines the design concept of the 10 and 15 kW at 176 MHz power amplifiers that were designed, built, and 10 kW successfully tested. 15 kW is now under construction. The amplifiers are combined from basic 5.5 kW compact 19" 7U water cooled drawer.
