  Superconducting linear accelerators are developing for different applications – for fundamental researches in High-Energy and High – Intensity Frontiers, nuclear physics, energetics, neutron spallation sources, synchrotron radiation sources, etc. The linac applications dictate the requirements for superconducting acceleration system, and, thus, for SRF technology. Fermilab is currently involved in two projects: ILC and Project X, both are based on SRF technology. For High-Intensity Frontier investigations, the Project X – a multi-experiment facility is developing based on 3 GeV, CW H linac in the frame of a wide collaboration of US National Laboratories. In a CW H linac several families of SC cavities are used: half-wave resonators (162.5 MHz); single-spoke cavities, SSR1 and SSR2 (325 MHz); elliptical 5-cell β=0.6 and β=0.9 cavities (650 MHz). Pulsed 3-8 GeV linac and ILC linac are based on 9-cell 1.3 GHz cavities. In the paper the basic requirements and the status of development of SC accelerating cavities, auxiliaries (couplers, tuners, etc.) and cryomodules are presented as well as technology challenges caused by their specifics.

  A multi-megawatt proton/H source, Project X, is under development at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. Main element of it is a 3 GeV superconducting proton linac which includes 5 families of superconducting cavities of three frequencies: 162.5, 325 and 650 MHz. Scope of this paper is the development of power couplers for 325 and 650 MHz at FNAL. Upgraded version of the accelerator will require two types of couplers, which reliably can operate at CW power level ~25 kW at 325 MHz and ~100 kW at 650 MHz respectively. In this paper we are describing the current design of these devices.

  Resonance excitation of longitudinal high order modes in superconducting RF structures of Project X CW linac is studied. We analyze regimes of operation of the linac with high beam current, which can be used to provide an intense muon source for the future Neutrino Factory or Muon Collider, and also important for the Accelerator-Driven Subcritical (ADS) systems. We calculate power loss and associated heat load to the cryogenic system. Longitudinal emittance growth is estimated. We consider an alternative design of the elliptical cavity for the high energy part of linac, which is more suitable for high current operation.

The Project X Injector Experiment (PXIE), a test bed for the Project X front end, will be completed at Fermilab at FY12-16. One of the challenging goals of PXIE is demonstration of the capability to form a 1 mA H beam with an arbitrary selected bunch pattern from the initially 5 mA 162.5 MHz CW train. The bunch selection will be made in the Medium Energy Beam Transport (MEBT) at 2.1 MeV by diverting undesired bunches to an absorber. This paper will present the MEBT scheme and describe development of its elements, including the kickers and absorber.

An ambitious upgrade to the FNAL accelerator complex is progressing in the Project-X Injector Experiment (PXIE). The PXIE accelerator requires 8 superconducting half-wave resonators optimized for the acceleration of 1 mA β = 0.11 H ion beams. Here we present the status of the half-wave resonator development, focusing particularly on cavity design, with a brief update on prototype fabrication.
