  Now the stage of the 30 MeV portion of ARIEL (The Advanced Rare Isotope Laboratory) e-Linac (1.3 GHz, SRF) is under commissioning which includes an injector cryomodule (ICM) with a single nine-cell cavity and the 1st accelerator cryomodule (ACM1) with two cavities configuration. The two ACM1 cavities are driven by a single klystron with vector-sum control and running in CW mode. We have observed a ponderomotive instability in ACM1 driven by the Lorentz force and seeded through microphonics that impacts beam stability [1-5]. Extensive damping has been implemented during a recent shut-down. The beam test results show 20 MeV acceleration gain can be reached by ACM1. A fast piezoelectric (Pie-zo) tuner is under development to allow a fast tuning compensation for the e-Linac cavities. In this paper, the progress of the microphonics suppression of Cryomod-ules is presented.

  TRIUMF has designed, fabricated and tested the first balloon variant of the single spoke resonator at 325 MHz and β=0.3. TRIUMF has also designed and built a mechanical tuner as part of the development. The tuner employs a nutcracker lever pressing at the beam ports driven by a scissor jack. The scissor is actuated through a tube coupling to a warm ball-screw and servo-motor located outside the cryostat. The design and warm tests of the tuner will be presented.
