The Soreq Applied Research Accelerator Facility, SARAF, is currently under construction at Soreq NRC. SARAF is based on a continuous wave (cw), proton/deuteron rf superconducting linear accelerator with variable energy (5-40 MeV) and current (0.04-2 mA). SARAF is designed to enable hands-on maintenance, which implies beam loss below 10-5 for the entire accelerator. Phase I of SARAF consists of an ECR ion source, a LEBT section, a 4-rod RFQ, a MEBT section, a superconducting module housing 6 half-wave resonators and 3 superconducting solenoids, a diagnostic plate and a beam dump. Phase II will include 5 additional superconducting modules. The ECR source has been in routine operation since 2006, the RFQ has been operated with ions and is currently under characterization. The superconducting module rf performance is being characterized off the beam line. Phase I commissioning results, their comparison to beam dynamics simulations and Phase II plans will be presented.
