  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 experimental dark current measurement results are obtained on HZB SC RF gun. The field emitters are considered to be random defects on the back wall of the cavity. Conducting wires with 1 micron length, blobs of 200 micron diameter and ”tip on tip” combination of them are taken as dark current emitters in the cavity. RF fields were calculated with CLANS program. The dynamic simulation of dark currents from these emitters fit experimental data. The emitter heating power by RF induced current is four orders of magnitude larger than by the field emitted dark current. The RF induced emitter temperature is proportional to ω1/2 which explains the accelerating gradient limit of a cavity like Kilpatrik law. The RF processing by high order modes seems to be promising.

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.
