The superconducting driver and post-accelerator linacs of the FRIB project, the large scale radioactive beam facility under construction at MSU, require the construction of about 400 low-beta Quarter-wave (QWR) and Half-wave resonators (HWR) with four different optimum velocities. 1st and 2nd generation prototypes of β=0.041 and 0.085 QWRs and β=0.53 HWRs have been built and tested, and have more than fulfilled the FRIB and ReA design goals. The present cavity surface preparation at MSU allowed production of low-beta cavities nearly free from field emission. The first two cryostats of β=0.041 QWRs are now in operation in the ReA3 linac. A 3rd generation design of the FRIB resonators allowed to further improve the cavity parameters, reducing the peak magnetic field in operation and increasing the possible operation gradient , with consequent reduction of the number of required resonators. The construction of the cavities for FRIB, which includes three phases for each cavity type (development, pre-production and production runs) has started. Cavity design, construction, treatment and performance will be described and discussed.
Michigan State University designs and establishes FRIB as a DOE Office of Science National User Facility in support of the mission of the Office of Nuclear Physics.

Michigan State University is currently testing prototype and production cavities for two accelerator projects. 80.5 MHz β=0.085 quarter wave resonators (QWR) are being produced as part of a cryomodule for ReA3. 322 MHz β=0.53 half wave resonators (HWR) are being prototyped for a driver linac for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams. This paper will discuss test results and how different cavity preparations effect cavity performs. Also various diagnostics methods have been developed, such as second sound quench location determination, and temperature mapping to determine hot spots from defects and multipacting location.
