  A 325 MHz RFQ is designed to accelerate a beam current of 15 mA in CW mode with injection energy of 35 keV and output energy of 3.2 MeV for China Accelerator Driven sub-critical System (ADS) injector I. Total RF power of 320 kW has to be delivered into the RFQ cavity. For reliable operation, four input couplers are adopted to share the driven power. A coaxial loop type input coupler is developed. The coupler features a Tristan type RF window, a doorknob to realize the transition from a half-height WR2300 waveguide to a coaxial line and a coaxial line with a coupling antenna loop. Two prototypes of the window and inner conductor assemblies have been fabricated and received high power test. The prototypes were tested up to 100 kW CW RF power in traveling wave mode. This paper will describe the design, fabrication and high power test of the coupler in details.
