The superconducting parallel-bar cavity is a deflecting/ crabbing cavity with attractive properties, compared to other conventional designs, that is currently being considered for a number of applications. The new parallel-bar design with curved loading elements and circular or elliptical outer conductors have improved properties compared to the designs with rectangular outer conductors. We present the designs proposed as the deflecting cavities for the Jefferson Lab 12 GeV upgrade and for Project-X and crabbing cavities for the proposed LHC luminosity upgrade and electron-ion collider at Jefferson Lab.
