  The CLIC study group at CERN has built two X-band HDS (Hybrid Damped Structure) accelerating structures for high-power testing in NLCTA at SLAC. These accelerating structures are novel with respect to their rf-design and their fabrication technique. The eleven-cell constant impedance structures, one made out of copper and one out of molybdenum, are assembled from clamped high-speed milled quadrants. They feature the same heavy higher-order-mode damping as nominal CLIC structures achieved by slotted irises and radial damping waveguides for each cell. The X-band accelerators are exactly scaled versions of structures tested at 30 GHz in the CLIC test facility, CTF3. The results of the X-band tests are presented and compared to those at 30 GHz to determine frequency scaling, and are compared to the extensive copper data from the NLC structure development program to determine material dependence and make a basic validation of the HDS design.

  The selection of candidate materials for the accelerating cavities of the Compact LInear Collider (CLIC) is carried out in parallel with high power RF testing. The DC breakdown field of copper, copper alloys, refractory metals, titanium and aluminium have been measured with a dedicated setup. Higher maximum fields are obtained for refractory metals and for titanium, which exhibits important damages after conditioning. Fatigue behaviour of copper alloys has been studied for surface and bulk by pulsed laser irradiation and ultrasonic excitation, respectively. The selected copper alloys show consistently higher fatigue resistance than copper in both experiments. RF tests are planned. In order to obtain the best local properties a bi-metallic assembly is being studied for the accelerating structures. The mechanical strength of junctions of molybdenum and copper-zirconium C15000, made either by Hot Isostatic Pressing or explosion bonding was evaluated. The reliability of the results obtained with either technique should be improved. Testing in DC and RF is continued in order to select materials for a bi-metal exhibiting superior properties with respect to the combination C15000-Mo.
