Fermilab is planning a megawatt-level proton beam facility utilizing niobium superconducting RF (SRF) cavities. Project X at Fermilab will eventually provide high-intensity beams for research into the nature of matter at the "intensity frontier". Research and development in several areas will bring the SRF technology to the level needed for this application. Among developments in SRF being pursued with our national and international collaborators are 162.5 MHz half-wave resonators, 325 MHz single-spoke resonators, and two types of elliptical multi-cell 650 MHz cavities. Performance requirements for these cavities and cryomodules in continuous wave (CW) operation are extremely stringent in order to provide high accelerating gradients with acceptable total cryogenic load and overall accelerator capital and operating costs. This paper presents some highlights of the SRF R&D program and proton linac development work at Fermilab.

  Fermilab is in the process of constructing a proton linac to accelerate a 1 mA CW beam up to 30 MeV. It will be a test for the front end of Project X and known as the Project X Injector Experiment (PXIE). The major goal of PXIE is the validation of the Project X concept and mitigation of technical risks. It is expected to be constructed in the period of 2012-2016. The PXIE linac consists of a Ion source and LEBT, a 162.5 MHz RFQ, a MEBT, a 162.5 MHz HWR cryomodule (designed and built at ANL) and a 325 MHZ SSR1 cryomodule (designed and built at FNAL). In this paper we present the recent advances in the development of the SSR1 resonators at Fermilab. Several bare SSR1 resonators have been processed, heat-treated and tested successfully in the Fermilab Vertical Test Stand. The outfitting of helium vessels is in process and the coarse-fine frequency tuning system has been designed and is currently being procured and tested. Details of the power coupler are also discussed.
