  The low-energy SCRF section of CW SC linac of Project X starts from Half Wave Resonators (HWR) having operating frequency f=162.5 MHz, optimal β= 0.11 and will accelerate the beam from 2 MeV up to 11 MeV. The preliminary analysis of beam dynamics shows that multipole effects caused by asymmetry of RF fields in HWR cavities aren’t negligible. In this paper we present the analysis of influence of multipole effects on beam dynamics and discuss the possible solutions how to compensate these effects.

  This paper presents an analysis of beam losses along the current design of the FNAL 3 GeV superconducting cw linac. Simulations from the RFQ exit up to the end of the linac (~430 meters) are performed on the FermiGrid using the beam dynamics code TRACK. The impact of beam mismatch, element misalignments, and RF jitter on the beam dynamics is discussed and corresponding beam loss patterns are presented. A correction scheme to compensate for misalignments is described.

  The Project X Injector Experiment (PXIE) will serve as a prototype for the Project X front end. The aim is to validate the Project-X design and to decrease technical risks, known to be mainly related to the front end. PXIE will accelerate a 1 mA CW beam to about 25 MeV. It will consist of an ion source, LEBT, CW RFQ, MEBT, two SC cryomodules, a diagnostic section and a beam dump. A bunch-by-bunch chopper located in the MEBT section will allow formation of an arbitrary bunch structure. PXIE deviates somewhat from the current Project-X front end concept in that it provides additional instrumentation and relies on a reduced number of kickers for bunch chopping; the diagnostic section also include an RF separator to allow studying extinction of removed bunches. The paper discusses the main requirements and constraints motivating the facility layout and optics. Final adjustments to the Project X front end design, if needed, will be based on operational experience gained with PXIE.

  Superconducting CW linac was proposed for Project X to accelerate H beam from 2.1 MeV to 3 GeV with nominal peak and average currents of respectively 5 mA and 1 mA. Linac built of 5 different families of resonators: half-wave, spoke (2), and elliptical (2) working at 162.5 MHz 325 MHz and 650 MHz to cover all energy range. Cavities and focusing elements are assembled in cryomodules. In baseline design all cryomodules are separated by short warm sections. It makes machine more reliable and maintainable and provide space for beam diagnostics and collimation. A long (~10m) gap between cryomodules at1 GeV is also being considered to provide space for beam extraction for nuclear experimental program. In paper we present the latest lattice of the linac baseline design and results of beam studies for this lattice. We briefly compare performance of the baseline design with alternative one without half-wave resonator section.
