We observe that there is an increase in the demand, by the scientific community, for accelerated CW ion beams which can be efficiently provided by SC ion linacs. This demand can be categorized into two areas: existing and new facilities. Existing facilities are being refurbished and upgraded for higher energies and beam intensities. Several new projects are under development or construction worldwide. Recently, development of new SC ion linacs has started in China, Korea and Spain. In this talk I will briefly review both the upgrade and new SC ion linac projects with a primary focus on the advances in heavy-ion linac technologies achieved at ANL in connection with the efficiency and intensity upgrade of ATLAS.

  The Rare Isotope Science Project (RISP) got launched December 2011 which consists of In-Flight Fragmentation Facility and ISOL facility, providing uniques research opportunities in broad range of sciences. The superonducting driver linac can accelerate up to 200 MeV/u for uranium beam and up to 600 MeV for proton beam. The ISOL post linac which is also a superconducting linac. Design parameters and choices are presented.

  Heavy Ion Research Facility at Lanzhou is a heavy ion accelerator complex for nuclear, atomic, and biology application research activities. It is the biggest heavy ion accelerator facility in China, consisting two cyclotrons in series as injector and two cooling storage rings (CSRm and CSRe) as main synclotron and experimental spectrum separately. The species from P to U were accelerated in the machine, And the maximum energy is 1 GeV/u for C. The experimetal teminals are on meterial, biology, canser therapy, SHE, RIB, mass measurement, inner target, and so on. To improve beam intensity and available beam time, a linear injectors SSC-LINAC were proposed in 2009. It consists a 4-rod RFQ and 4 IH-DTL tanks. The RFQ, IH-DTL, and 60 kW solid state amplifier for SSC-LINAC are tested priliminaryly. The operation status and progress of upgrade projects of HIRFL are presented in the paper.
