  The Project X Linac is based primarily on superconducting RF technology starting from a low beam energy of approximately 2.5 MeV up to the exit energy of 8 GeV. The Linac consists of 162.5 MHz half-wave cavities, 325 MHz single-spoke cavities, and two families of 650 MHz elliptical cavities - all operating in continuous-wave mode - up to a beam energy of 3 GeV. The beam is further accelerated up to 8 GeV in a pulsed mode ILC-like Linac utilizing 1.3 GHz cavities. In this paper we will give an overview of the design and status of the Project X superconducting RF cavities and cryomodules.

  In Fermilab we are build and tested several superconducting Single Spoke Resonators (SSR1, β=0.22) which can be used for acceleration of low beta ions. Fist two cavities performed very well during cold test in Vertical Test Station at FNAL. One dressed cavity was also tested successfully in Horizontal Test Station. Currently we are building 8 cavity cryomodule for PIXIE project. Additional 10 cavities were manufactured in the industry and ongoing cold test results will be presented in this poster.

  Consistent improvement in the quality factors of SRF cavities at medium surface fields of about 70 mT represents a direct cost savings factor for the proposed Project X CW linac and other SRF accelerator projects based on CW operation. Current state-of-the-art in SRF does not provide processing recipes to maximize the Q0 at those fields since a complete understanding of the mechanisms governing the quality factor at non-negligible surface fields is not yet developed. In this contribution we present results of the FNAL effort in both scientific understanding and practical improvements and discuss the directions we are pursuing for future research.
