The work on superconducting proton and heavy ion accelerators will be reviewed. The helix seems to be an adequate structure for low velocity particles. For energies above 15 MeV/N other types of accelerating structures may be used. Superconducting Nb helices were developed at several places. A maximum gradient of 2.8 MV/m witha Q of 2.109 has been obtained recently in Karlsruhe with a ¿/2 Nb helix at 90 MHz. First proton acceleration in superconducting helical structures indicates the status of the new technology.
