Metal photocathodes are widely used in electron injectors due to their stability and long life time; unfortunately they exhibit low quantum efficiency. Due to adsorption of contaminants the work function increases and thus the quantum efficiency is further reduced. In order to increase the quantum efficiency of our Pb cathode we performed a cleaning procedure by means of a high power excimer laser as suggested by Smedley*. The process was studied on witness samples in a combined photo emission, SEM and quantum efficiency measurement study. Thin Lead films were arc-deposited on optical polished Mo-substrates**. Before and after irradiation the sample was analyzed at 140 eV photon energy at a XPS/ARPES end station at the synchrotron radiation source Bessy II. We followed the change of the Pb 5d signals. In the initial situation we observed signals originating from metallic Pb and Pb in the oxidized state, respectively. Since the surface roughness is of concern for the injector performance it was examined before and after the irradiation procedure with white-light-interferometry and the surface morphology by means of SEM.

  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 Polish synchrotron light source Solaris is under construction in Kraków. The project is based on the MAX IV light source being built in Lund, Sweden. The 1.5 GeV storage ring for Solaris and part of the injector complex are identical to that of MAX IV, although both are housed in buildings that differ from those of MAX IV. Ground breaking on the green field site at the Jagiellonian University campus occurred at the start of 2012. A detail description of the facility infrastructure, services and construction choices is given together with the latest project developments for main accelerator systems.
