The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) driver linac is to accelerate all the stable ion beams from proton to uranium beyond 200 MeV/u with beam powers up to 400 kW, which will be the first large-scale, CW SRF ion linac. The beam commissioning of the front end (from the ion source to the RFQ) already began and is in progress. The Accelerator Readiness Review (ARR) for beam through the first three β=0.041 cryomodules is scheduled for May 2018. The next step is the beam commissioning through the 12 SRF cavities housed in these 3 cryomodules with 6 superconducting solenoid magnets. The cryomodules and the adjacent warm diagnostics boxes in between have been already installed and aligned in the tunnel. This paper describes the installation progress of the β=0.041 cryomodules and plans for ARR02.

The radio-frequency quadrupole (RFQ) at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) is a 4-vane type cavity designed to accelerate heavy ion beams with charge states Q/A between 1/7 and 1/3 from 12 keV/u to 0.5 MeV/u. The RFQ was assembled in the FRIB tunnel in November 2016. Bead-pull measurements and tuning were performed with low RF power. The RFQ has been conditioned to 59 kW in August 2017, which is sufficient to accelerate the Key Performance Parameter (KPP) beams, Argon and Krypton. The RFQ has been successful-ly commissioned with KPP beams in CW regime in Octo-ber 2017. 40Ar9+ and 86Kr17+ beams were accelerated by the FRIB RFQ in the CW regime to the designed energy of 0.5 MeV/u. With the multi-harmonic buncher operation-al, the FRIB RFQ commissioning has been completed with bunched beam in February 2018. The beam trans-mission efficiency through the RFQ was in good agree-ment with PARMTEQ simulation results. The detailed results from the FRIB RFQ tuning, high power condition-ing and beam commissioning will be presented in this paper.

  The RF system of the FRIB driver accelerator includes solid state amplifiers up to 18 kW operating at frequencies from 80.5 MHz to 322 MHz. Much higher power is required for the normal conducting RFQ, ~100 kW, and it is based on vacuum tubes. This invited talk presents the performance of solid state amplifiers and LLRF in off-line testing and on-line testing of the RFQ amplifier.

This paper presents recent developments of accelerator physics related topics for the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) being built at Michigan State University. While extensive beam dynamics simulations including all known errors do not show uncontrolled beam losses in the linac, ion beam contaminants extracted from the ECR ion source together with main ion beam can produce significant losses after the charge stripper. These studies resulted in development of beam collimation system at relatively low energy of 16 MeV/u and room temperature bunchers instead of originally planned superconducting ones. Commissioning of the Front End enabled detailed beam physics studies accompanied with the simulations using several beam dynamics codes. Settings of beam optics devices from the ECR to MEBT has been developed and applied to meet important project milestones. Similar work is planned for the beam commissioning of the first 3 cryomodules in the superconducting linac.
