The CEBAF 12 GeV upgrade project includes 80 new 7-cell cavities assembled into 10 cryomodules. These cryomodules were tested during production to characterize their microphonic response in situ. For several early cryomodules, detailed (vibration) modal studies of the cryomodule string were performed during the assembly process to identify the structural contributors to the measured cryomodule microphonic response. Structural modifications were then modeled, implemented, and verified by subsequent modal testing and in-situ microphonic response testing. Interim and final results from this multi-stage process will be reviewed.
