A set of six new 109 MHz β=0.15 superconducting quarter-wave resonators (QWR) has been built at ANL as part of an upgrade to the ATLAS superconducting heavy-ion linac. The final cavity string assembly will also use many of the techniques needed for the next generation of large high-performance ion linacs such as the U.S. Department of Energy's FRIB project. Single-cavity cold tests at T=4.5 K have been performed for three cavities with moveable coupler, rf pickup, and VCX fast tuner as required for the full 6-meter cryomodule assembly. The average maximum accelerating gradient of 4 cavities (3 new + 1 prototype), is EACC=11.2 MV/m (BPEAK=65 mT). Clean cavity string assembly techniques, required here and for most future SRF ion linacs, are fairly well developed. Details on cavity performance including high-field cw operation, microphonics and fast tuning are presented.

The High Intensity Neutrino Source (HINS) project represents the current effort at Fermilab to develop 60 MeV Proton/H- Linac as a front end for possible use in the Project X. Eighteen superconducting β=0.21 single spoke resonators (SSR), operating at 325 MHz, comprise the first stage of the HINS cold section. Two SSR cavities have now been fabricated in industry under this project and undergone surface treatment that is described here. We report the results of high gradient tests of the first SSR in the Vertical Test System (VTS). The cavity successfully achieved accelerating gradient of 13.5 MV/m; higher than the design operating gradient of 10 MV/m. The history of multipacting and conditioning during the VTS tests will be discussed. Experimental measurements of the cavity mechanical and vibration properties including Lorenz force detuning and measurements of X-rays resulting from field emission are also presented.
