Aimed at substituting output coupler to absorb remnant power of the LINAC, collinear load coated with high loss materials is expected to come reality. FeSiAl load is studied. The effect of the coating volume upon the cavity frequency and Q factor is analyzed and the dimension compensations of the cavities are suggested to tune the load cavities at 2856 MHz. Orthogonal Experimental Method is utilized to investigate the sensitivity of permittivity (both real part and imaginary part) and permeability (both real part and imaginary part) to cavity characteristics. Five cavities with different coating dimensions are manufactured and their operating frequencies and Q are measured. Compared with the simulations, they show that the Q factor, which is characterization of the actual attenuation of the FeSiAl, agrees very well with the theoretical value and Q factor of the resonant cavity is measured with the probe method. The relationship between Q factor and the length of the test probe is deduced and eventually the individual Q value of a load cavity is extracted. Simulation shows the FeSiAl load can support average power over 15 kW and the one-way attenuation is about 30 dB.
