Schemes utilizing crab cavities to achieve head-on beam-beam collisions were proposed for the LHC HiLumi upgrade. These crabbing schemes require that the crab cavities be compact in order to fit into the tight spacing available in the existing LHC beamlines at the location where the crab cavities will be installed. Under the support of US LARP program, Old Dominion University and SLAC have joint efforts to develop a 400-MHz compact superconducting crab cavity to meet the HiLumi upgrade requirements. In this paper, we will present the RF modeling and analysis of a parallel-bar/ridged-waveguide shaped 400-MHz compact cavity design that can be used for both the horizontal and vertical crabbing schemes. We will also present schemes for HOM damping and multipacting analysis for such a design.

The drive linac for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) utilizes several types of low beta superconducting resonators to accelerate the ion beams from 0.3 MeV per nucleon to 200 MeV per nucleon. Multipacting is an issue of concern for such superconducting resonators as they have unconventional shapes. We have used the parallel codes Tack3P and Omega3P, developed at SLAC under the support of the DOE SciDAC program, to analyze the multipacting barriers of such resonators. In this paper, we will present the simulation results for the β(v/c) = 0.085 Quarter Wave Resonator (QWR) for the FRIB project. Experimental data will also be presented to benchmark with the simulation results.

The 56 MHz SRF Quarter-Wave Resonator (QWR) is designed for RHIC as a storage cavity to improve the collider performance. 2D multipacting simulation has been done for the cavity alone. Ripples were added to the outer body of the cavity for multipacting suppression based on the simulation findings. During operation, there will be four higher order mode (HOM) couplers and a fundamental power coupler (FPC) inserted through the end ports of the cavity and a fundamental mode damper (FD) inserted through a special port on the outer body. All of these components will be exposed to high RF fields. In this presentation we compare 2D and 3D codes simulation results for multipacting in the cavity. We also report 3D simulation results for multipacting simulation at the couplers.

Normal conducting RF cavities are required to operate at high gradient in the presence of strong magnetic field in muon ionization cooling channels for a Muon Collider. Experimental studies using an 805 MHz pillbox cavity at MTA of Fermilab has shown significant degradation in gradient performance and damage in the regions that are correlated with high RF fields in magnetic field up to 4 Tesla. These effects are believed to be related to the dark current and/or multipacting activities in the presence of external magnetic field. To improve the performance of the cavity, a new RF cavity with significantly lower surface field enhancement was designed, and will be built and tested in the near future. Numerical analyses of multipacting and dark current were performed using the 3D parallel code Track3P for both the original and new improved cavity profiles in order to gain more insight in understanding of the gradient issues under strong external magnetic field. In this paper, we will present the improved RF design and the dark current and multipacting analyses for the 805 MHz cavity.
