SPIRAL2 aims at building a multi-purpose facility dedicated to nuclear physics studies, including the production of rich-neutrons isotopes. The multi-beam linear accelerator is composed of superconducting accelerating modules and warm focusing magnets. IPN Orsay is in charge of the high energy accelerating modules, each hosting two superconducting (β = 0.12) quarter-wave resonators operating at an accelerating field of 6.5 MV/m at 88 MHz. The static and dynamic frequency tuning is achieved by the insertion and motion of a niobium plunger into the magnetic field area. The efficiency of the tuning (1 kHz/mm) has been validated during the tests of the cryomodule. In this paper we discuss the impact of such a tuning system, based on experimental results on Spiral2 cavities, on the different aspects: maximum accelerating field, Qo slopes, quench, multipacting and microphonics.

The SPIRAL2 project, installed in GANIL for Radioactive Ion Beam physics purposes requires the manufacturing of a multi beam driver. This driver is based on a superconducting Linac featuring two 88 MHz Quarter Wave Resonator families. IPN Orsay is in charge of the study and the assembly of the 7 high energy (beta = 0.12) cryomodules. Each cryomodule is composed of two QWRs, specified to operate at 4.2 K with a nominal accelerating gradient of 6.5 MV/m. A first qualifying cryomodule has been manufactured and tested at the beginning of 2008 in order to validate the resonator and the cryostat design before launching the serial production of the 6 remaining cryomodules. The paper presents the main results of this test and the cryomodule design in its final version.
