  H-mode cavities offer outstanding shunt impedances at low beam energies and enable the acceleration of intense ion beams. Crossed-bar H-cavities extend these properties to energies even beyond 100 MeV. Thus, the designs of the new injector linacs for FAIR, i.e. a 70 MeV, 70 mA proton driver for pbar-production and a cw intermediate mass, superconducting ion linac are based on these novel cavities. Several prototypes (normal & super-conducting) have been built and successfully tested. Moreover, designs for a replacement of the 80 MV Alvarez section of the GSI - Unilac will be discussed to improve the capabilities as the future FAIR heavy ion injector.

  The minimum transverse emittances achievable in a beam line are determined by the two transverse eigen-emittances of the beam. For vanishing interplane correlations they are equal to the transverse rms-emittances. Eigen-emittances are constants of motion for all symplectic beam line elements, i.e. (even tilted) linear elements. To allow for rms-emittance transfer, the eigen-emittances are changed by a non-symplectic action to the beam, preferably preserving the 4d-rms-emittance. Unlike emittance swapping the presented concept will allow transforming a beam of equal rms-emittances into a beam of different rms-emittances while preserving the 4d-rms-emittance. This contribution will introduce the concept for eigen-emittance shaping and rms-emittance transfer at an ion linac. The actual work status towards the experimental demonstration of the concept at the GSI UNILAC is presented.

  To provide the primary proton beam for the FAIR anti-proton research program, a 70 MeV, 70 mA linac is currently under design & construction at GSI. The nc machine comprises an ECR source, a 3 MeV RFQ, and a DTL based on CH-cavities. Up to 36 MeV pairs of rf-coupled cavities (CCH) are used. A prototype cavity has been built and is prepared for high power rf-testing. An overview of the status as well as on the perspectives of the project is given.
