The Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment (MICE) is an international effort to demonstrate the principle of ionization cooling in a segment of a realistic cooling channel using a muon beam. The experiment is sited at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in England. A 4-tesla uniform field region at each end of the cooling channel will be provided by a pair of identical, 3-m long spectrometer solenoids. As the beam enters and exits the cooling channel, the emittance will be measured within both the upstream and downstream 400 mm diameter magnet bores. Each magnet consists of a three-coil spectrometer magnet group and a two-coil pair that matches the solenoid uniform field into the adjacent MICE cooling channel. An array of five two-stage cryocoolers and one single-stage cryocooler are used to maintain the temperature of the magnet cold mass, radiation shield and current leads. Previous testing revealed several operational and design issues related to heat leak and quench protection that have since been corrected. Details of the magnet design modifications and their final assembly as well as the results of quench training tests will be presented here.

Recent progress on the design and fabrication of the RFCC (RF and Coupling Coil) module for the international MICE (Muon Ionization Cooling Experiment) will be reported. The MICE ionization cooling channel has two RFCC modules; each having four 201-MHz normal conducting RF cavities surrounded by one superconducting coupling coil (solenoid) magnet. The magnet is designed to be cooled by 3 cryocoolers. Fabrication of the RF cavities is complete; preparation for the cavity electro-polishing, low power RF measurements and tuning are in progress at LBNL. Fabrication of the cold mass of the first coupling coil magnet has been completed in China and the cold mass arrived at LBNL in late 2011. Preparations for testing the cold mass are currently under way at Fermilab. Plans for the RFCC module assembly and integration are being developed and will be described.

SRF electron guns hold out the promise of very bright beams for use in electron injectors, particularly for light source applications such as Free Electron Lasers. The University of Wisconsin is midway in a multi-year program to demonstrate a low frequency electron gun based on a quarter wave resonator cavity. The design includes active tuning and a high temperature superconducting solenoid for emittance compensation. We will report on the status of the 4 MeV SRF electron gun, including the cryomodule, the RF power coupler, the main RF power amplifier/low level RF control system, the photocathode laser system, and the diagnostic beamline. Installation is moving forward in a recently renovated experimental vault adjacent to the existing Aladdin synchrotron. First electron beam is expected in the summer 2012.

  The University of Wisconsin-Madison is continuing design efforts for a vacuum ultraviolet/X-ray Free Electron Laser facility. The design incorporates seeding the FEL to provide fully coherent photon output at energies up to ~1 keV. The focus of the present work is to minimize the cost of the facility while preserving its performance. To achieve this we are exploring variations in the electron beam driver for the FEL, in undulator design, and in the seeding mechanism. Design optimizations and trade-offs between the various technologies and how they affect the FEL scientific program will be presented.
