Tests Status of the SPIRAL 2 Low Beta Cryomodules

Abstract : The Spiral2 project at Ganil aims at producing exotic ion beams for Nuclear Physics. The accelerator of the primary beam is a superconducting LINAC designed to provide 5mA deuteron beams at 40MeV. It will also allow accelerating stable ions of different Q/A values ranging from protons to Q/A=1/6 heavy ions. The accelerator should be commissioned by the end of 2011, first beam in 2012; the first tests aiming to produce exotic beams are planned one year later. The superconducting LINAC consists of 12 low beta (0.07) quarter wave (88MHz) superconducting (SC) cavities and 24 beta (0,14) SC cavities integrated in their cryomodule. The status of the low beta cryomodules, supplied by the CEA Saclay Irfu institute, is reported in this paper. The RF full power tests were performed at the end of 2008 on the qualifying cryomodule, and the tests of the first series cavity in vertical cryostat were performed during spring 2009.
