The Spallation Neutron Source (SNS) linac is comprised of both normal and superconducting rf (SRF) accelerating structures. The SRF linac accelerates the beam from 186 to 1000 MeV through a series of ~100 low-b 'elliptical' multi-cell niobium cavities. This paper describes the SRF linac architecture, cavity design, rf power distribution topology, cavity field control philosophy, and the expected beam dynamics performance.
