Superconducting cavities with low RF frequencies and heavy damping of higher order modes (HOM) are desired for the main accelerator of High Energy Photon Source (HEPS), a 6 GeV synchrotron light source promising ultralow emittance currently under construction in Beijing. A compact 166.6 MHz superconducting cavity was proposed adopting a quarter-wave β=1 geometry. Based on the successful development of a proof-of-principle cavity, a HOM-damped 166.6 MHz compact superconducting cavity was subsequently designed. Ferrite damper was installed on the beam pipe to reduce HOM impedance below stringent threshold of coupled-bunch instabilities. Being compact, RF field heating on the cavity vacuum seal was carefully examined against quenching the NbTi flange. The cavity was later dressed with helium vessel and the tuning mechanism was also realized. Excellent RF and mechanical properties were eventually achieved. Finally, the two-cavity string was designed to ensure smooth transitions among components and proper shielding of synchrotron light. This paper presents a complete design of a fully dressed HOM-damped low-frequency β=1 superconducting cavity for HEPS.

Low-frequency superconducting cavities are needed in main accelerators for storage ring light sources with ultralow emittance. Therefore, a compact 166.6-MHz superconducting proof-of-principle cavity was designed for the High Energy Photon Source (HEPS) in China by adopting a quarter-wave geometry with β=1*. The cavity is compact in size yet possessing a low resonant frequency. The nearest higher order mode is significantly separated from the fundamental mode, making the cavity attractive for high-current accelerators such as HEPS. The achieved accelerating voltage of 3.0 MV is well beyond the designed 1.5 MV and high surface electromagnetic fields were reached with excellent RF and mechanical performances. Multipacting barriers were easily processed. This constitutes the first demonstration of a compact low-frequency β=1 superconducting cavity for HEPS. The design, fabrication, surface preparation, and cryogenic tests of the cavity will be presented.
