The high current deuteron RFQ has been developed and widely used in many projects, especially for accelerator based neutron source and its application. This paper reviews not only the recent developments in the world wide, also presents the beam dynamics, structure design ,RF full power test, beam commissioning of PKUNIFTY, which is consisted of a high current very compact ECR source, a 201.5MHz four-rod deuteron RFQ, thicker beryllium target and its moderating, collimation and neutron radiography system. RF and beam commissioning with duty cycle of 4% show the RFQ inter-vane voltage reaches 70kV at about 240kW, the delivered deuteron peak beam current is about 12mA at 290kW with the beam transmission of about 60%. The improvement of transmission is going on. The initial neutron radiography commissioning has been carried out. The results will promote the future development of small accelerator based neutron source.

  At Peking University (PKU) a new helium injector for coupled radio frequency quadrupole(RFQ) and separated function radio frequency quadrupole(SFRFQ) within one cavity, so called as coupled RFQ & SFRFQ, was designed recently*. It will provide a 30keV 20mA He+ beam whose emittance is less than 0.15 π.mm.mrad for the accelerator. It is a combination of a 2.45GHz PKU PMECRIS (Permanent Magnet ECRIS) and a 1.16 m long LEBT. Within the 1.16 m LEBT, 2 solenoids, 2 steering magnets, a kicker, a space charge compensation section, a collimator, two vacuum valves, a Faraday cup and an ACCT are installed. The manufacture has been completed and the commissioning is on the way. In this paper we will address the commissioning results and its progress.

The CRS (coupled RFQ-SFRFQ) cavity is a new type linac that couples traditional RFQ (radio frequency quadrupole) and SFRFQ (separated function RFQ) electrodes into a single cavity. The overall design of the CRS cavity has been completed and the linac is being manufactured currently. In this paper, we aimed to design a frequency tuning system for the CRS cavity, which will be used to explore the electromagnetic field distribution between RFQ and SFRFQ sections in the cavity. The frequency range, variation of Q value, power consumption and electric field distribution were investigated. Based on the beam dynamic program SFRFQDYNv1.0, we analysed the beam transmission properties of the cavity under the unbalanced electric field distribution. The optimized parameters of the tuning system were obtained.

The manufacturing process of the SSC-LINAC RFQ went to end and the LLRF measurement has been done. The frequency of the RFQ is 53.557 MHz without tuning, which is not far from the design value 53.667 MHz. The unflatness of the field along the beam axis is less than ±4%, which meets the simulation results. The dipole field is in the acceptable margin as well. The frequency will be adjusted by tuning plungers in operation. In this paper, the field distribution along the cavity has been measured and compared with the modulated electrodes simulation. The difference and its influences on the beam transmission have been analyzed.

To improve the super heavy ion beam injection efficiency and supply high current heavy ion beam for Separated Sector Cyclotron, A CW RFQ for heavy ion with high charge state has been designed and manufactured in the last two years. This RFQ will operate at 53.667MHz, will accelerate super heavy ions such as 238U34+ to 143keV/u. This paper will introduce the SSC-LINAC components, especially the RFQ beam dynamics, full length structure design, tuning and cooling method. Furthermore RF system and RF commissioning with full power for the RFQ power cavity will also be presented.
