We have designed and built a 4-cell Plane Wave Transformer (PWT) linac structure, designed to operate at 2856 MHz in the π mode. The 210 mm long structure has been designed based on extensive simulations performed using the codes SUPERFISH and GDFIDL, which were used to obtain a tolerance map for the frequency and other electrical parameters of the structure. Two prototypes were made to address the various fabrication issues, and to compare results obtained from cold tests with those predicted
