One important component for LEReC project is a 704 MHz booster cavity, which was modified from the BNL ERL 704 MHz SRF gun cavity. The major modifications include converting the upstream cathode transportation to a proper beam pipe, adding a HOM coaxial line HOM damper to the downstream, retracting FPC insertions, and improvement of cryomodule layout. In the past one and half year, tremendous work was completed: the cavity was modified and tested vertically, FPC were conditioned, and HOM damper were designed and conditioned, cryomodule was re-assembled. The booster cavity cryomodule was successfully commissioned in mid October, and it was moved to LEReC location at RHIC tunnel 2 O’clock early November. This paper will report the configuration of the new cryomodule and its commissioning results.

To improve RHIC luminosity for heavy ion beam energies below 10 GeV/nucleon, the Low Energy RHIC electron Cooler (LEReC) is designed, and is currently under commissioning at BNL. The linac of LEReC consists of a DC photoemission gun, a 704 MHz superconducting radio frequency (SRF) booster cavity, a three-cell 2.1 GHz third harmonic cavity for RF curvature correction, a single-cell 704 MHz cavity for energy de-chirping and a 704 MHz deflecting cavity for diagnostic line. In this paper, we present the commissioning of three normal conducting cavities mentioned above.

The Linac of Low Energy RHIC electron Cooler (LEReC) is designed to deliver a 1.6 MeV to 2.6 MeV electron beam, with peak-to-peak dp/p less than 7·10-4. The booster cavity is the major accelerating component in LEReC, which is a 0.4 cell cavity operating at 2 K, with a maximum energy gain of 2.2 MeV. It is modified from the Energy Recovery Linac (ERL) photocathode gun, with fundamental power coupler, pickup coupler and HOM coupler close to each other. Crosstalk effect in this cavity is simulated and measured. Correction method is proposed to meet the energy spread requirement.

A 5-cell 650 MHz SRF cavity was designed for eRHIC SRF linac. One Cu cavity was fabricated for HOM damping study, and one Nb cavity was fabricated for SRF studies. Through various post-processing recipes and vertical tests, the SRF study includes high Q-value study for ERL SRF linac and high gradient study for recirculating linac. This paper reports the HOM damping measurement on the Cu cavity and preliminary vertical test results.
