The Accelerator Production of Tritium Low Energy Demonstration Accelerator program (APT/LEDA) has been testing a prototype section of Coupled Cavity Drift Tube LINAC (CCDTL) called the Low Beta Hot Model (LBHM). The LBHM is a one meter, five cavity brazed copper structure designed to accept 45 kW of RF power but not accelerate beam. Conditioning began on the LBHM in July 1999 and testing continued through the spring of 2000 with up to 45 kW of RF power being dissipated within the copper structure. The LBHM testing was essential in helping identify the critical parameters needed for the design of the LEDA CCDTL accelerator and the APT Plant accelerator.
