We have developed an optimized electromagnetic and mechanical design of a 162.5 MHz half-wave resonator (HWR) suitable for acceleration of high-intensity proton or H-minus beams in the energy range from 2 MeV to 10 MeV. The cavity design is based on recent advances in SRF technology for TEM-class structures being developed at ANL. Highly optimized EM parameters were achieved by adjusting the shapes of both inner and outer conductors. This new design will be processed with a new HWR horizontal electropolishing system after all mechanical work on the cavity including the welding of the helium jacket is complete. The prototype HWR is being fabricated by domestic vendors under ANL’s supervision.
