In collaboration of GSI, HIM and IAP Frankfurt, the superconducting linear accelerator HELIAC is being built at GSI. The cw-mode operated linac with a final energy of 7.3 MeV/u at a mass-to-charge ratio of A/q=6 and a frequency of 216.816 MHz is intended for various experiments, especially with heavy ions at energies close to the Coulomb barrier for the research of SHE. The planned linac consists of 4 cryostats, 4 superconducting bunchers, 4 solenoids and 12 superconducting CH-cavities. After successful beam tests with CH0 and high frequency tests with CH1 and CH2, CH3 to CH11 will be designed. Based on previous experience and successful test results, individual optimizations of the cavity design will be performed. Attention has been paid to reducing production costs by designing as many components as possible, such as spokes or the tank caps with the same geometries. Despite this cost reduction, it was possible to improve the theoretical performance in the simulations. In addition, a test bench is being developed which will be used for the first-time investigation of the mechanical stability, possible material fatigue and the durability of the dynamic bellows tuners.

The balloon variant of the spoke resonator was proposed to eliminate the intensive multipacting (MP) barriers around the operating field level by modifying the local electro-magnetic (EM) fields. TRIUMF has previously reported the prototyping of a 325MHz β=0.3 single spoke resonator (SSR) that demonstrated the principle of the balloon concept. To extend the benefits of the balloon variant to multi-spoke resonators, this paper will report a conceptual design of a 325MHz β=0.5 balloon double spoke resonator (DSR). The consequences from the balloon SSR design, such as the relations between EM field distributions and the field levels of the MP barriers, were applied to the DSR design. Other particular geometry features were also added due to the characters of DSRs. The simulated MP barriers were significantly squeezed to the lower field level compared to a conventional DSR design. Simulation results and conceptual design will be reported.
