The high power GeV superconducting proton (H+/H-) linac is an important tool for scientific discovery. It has been developed and proposed as a driver for spallation neutron source, for high intensity neutrino physics study, for subcritical nuclear power production and nuclear waste transmutation, and for production of tritium. However, the construction and operation of such a superconducting proton linac is expensive. In this talk, we will discuss about a new type of proton linac [1-3], recirculating superconducting proton linac, which has the potential to substantially reduce the linac cost by using much less number of superconducting cavities.
