In October 2010 Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin received funding to design and build the Berlin Energy Recovery Linac Project BERLinPro. The goal of this compact ERL is to develop the accelerator physics and technology required to generate and accelerate a 100-mA, 1 mm·mrad emittance beam. Given the flexibility of ERLs, other operation modes such as short-bunch operation will also be investigated. The BERLinPro technology and know-how can then be transferred to a variety of ERL-based applications. Presently, BERLinPro is in the design phase and the optics has been settled. Furthermore, first beam has been achieved with a superconducting RF photoinjector, which represents an important step towards realizing a CW injector for BERLinPro. An overview of the present status and the conceptual design report is presented.

  SRF photoelectron guns offer the promise of high brightness, high average current beam production for the next generation of accelerator driven light sources such as free electron lasers, THz radiation sources or energy-recovery linac driven synchrotron radiation sources. In a first step a fully superconducting RF (SRF) photoelectron gun is under development by a collaboration between HZB, DESY, JLAB, BNL and NCBJ. The aim of the experiment is to understand and improve the performance of a Nb SRF gun cavity coated with a small metallic Pb cathode film on the cavity backplane. This paper describes the highlights from the commissioning and beam parameter measurements. The main focus is on lessons learned from operation of the SRF gun.

  The obtained Q0 value of a superconducting niobium cavity is known to depend on various factors like the RRR of the Niobium material, crystallinity, chemical treatment history, the high-pressure rinsing process, or effectiveness of the magnetic shielding. We have observed that spatial thermal gradients over the cavity length during cool-down appear to contribute to a degradation of Q0. Measurements were performed in the Horizontal Bi-Cavity Test Facility (HoBiCaT) at HZB on TESLA type cavities as well as on disc- and rod-shaped niobium samples equipped with thermal, electrical and magnetic diagnostics. Possible explanations for the effect are discussed.
