The 40 MeV L-band electron linac at the Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research, Osaka University is operated for joint-use in Osaka University. It is equipped with a three-stage sub-harmonic buncher (SHB) system consisting of two 108 MHz and a 216 MHz rf cavities to produce a high-intensity single-bunch beam. They were quarter-wavelength coaxial cavities made of a clad plate of copper on stainless steel and were inefficiently cooled with water flowing through a pipe wound on their outer surfaces made of stainless steel. We have renewed the cavities with new ones made only of oxygen-free copper to solve the problem. We made physical design and basic mechanical design of the new rf cavities by ourselves by taking a mechanical design of the SHB cavity of the electron-positron linac at KEK, Japan as a model. Special care was devoted in the mechanical design to cool the most part of the cavities directly with water instead of relying on heat conductivity in copper so that they are stable in regard to temperature. They have been installed in the linac and have been working well in expected performance. We will report details of design and fabrication of the new SHB cavities.
