The Proton Engineering Frontier Project (PEFP) is developing a 100-MeV high-duty-factor proton linac, which consists of a 50-keV microwave ion source, a 3-MeV radio frequency quadrupole, a 100-MeV drift tube linac, a 20-MeV beam transport line, and a 100-MeV beam transport line. It will supply proton beams of 20-MeV and 100-MeV with peak current of 20 mA to users for proton beam applications. The beam duty factor will be 24% and 8% respectively. The 20-MeV front-end accelerator has been installed and operated at the KAERI Daejeon test stand for user service, and the rest part of the accelerator has been fabricated and will be installed at the new site of Gyeongju City in 2011. The detailed status of the 100-MeV proton linac will be presented.
