Crabbing cavities are essential in particle colliders to compensate the luminosity degradation due to beam collision at a crossing angle. The 952.6 MHz 2-cell rf-dipole crabbing cavity system was proposed for the Jefferson Lab Electron-Ion Collider to restore the head-on collisions of electron and proton bunches at the interaction point. A prototype cavity was designed and developed to demonstrate the performance of multi-cell rf-dipole structures. This paper presents the fabrication process and cold test results of the first 2-cell rf-dipole prototype cavity.
