  A clinical synchrotron facility for cancer therapy using energetic proton and ion beams (C, He and O) is under construction and will be installed at the Radiologische Universitätsklinik in Heidelberg, Germany, starting in 2005. The status of the ECR ion source systems, the beam line components of the low energy beam transport lines, the 400 keV/u RFQ and the 20 MV IH-cavity as well as the linac rf system will be reported. Two prototype magnets of the linac quadrupole magnets have been built at GSI and have been tested successfully. A test bench for the 1.4 MW, 217 MHz cavity amplifier built by industry has been installed at GSI including a 120 kW driver amplifier which will be used also for high power tests of the RFQ. A test bench for the RFQ using proton beams is presently being set up at the IAP. RF tuning of the 1:2 scaled IH-DTL model as well as Microwave Studio simulations of the model and the power cavity have been also performed at the IAP [1].

  Gabor lenses provide strong cylinder symmetric electric focusing using a confined nonneutral plasma. The density distribution of the enclosed space charge is defined by the enclosure conditions in transverse and longitudinal direction. For a homogeneous charge density distribution the resulting electrostatic field and therefrom the focusing forces inside the space charge cloud are linear. Additionally in case of a positive ion beam the space charge of the confined electrons causes compensation of the ion beam space charge forces. To study the capabilities of a Gabor double lens system to match an ion beam into a RFQ a testinjector was installed at the IAP and put into operation successfully. First beam profiles and emittance measurements as well as measurements of the beam energy and energy spread have already been performed and show satisfactory results and no significant deviation from the theoretical predictions. To verify the beam focusing of bunched beams using this lens type at beam energies up to 500 keV a new high field Gabor lens was build and will be installed behind of the RFQ.
