  The 250 MeV SwissFEL injector test facility is in operation since August 2010. Measurements with the "CTF2 Gun 5" photocathode S-band rf-gun show promising beam parameters and satisfy the requirements of the SwissFEL project. Since the performance of the electron source is fundamental for the stability and brightness of a free electron laser, further gun optimization studies are pursued. Under investigation is currently a 3.6 cell C-band gun. First ASTRA simulations indicate that with this gun the peak-current can be increased, thanks to a shorter laser pulse and a higher initial acceleration, by almost a factor of two, at slightly better emittance values than the S-band "PSI Gun 1". Since the beam-quality depends also on the achieved performance of the cathode, several copper cathodes had been tested in the SwissFEL injector test facility to analyze the observed rapid degradation of quantum efficiency.

  DAEδALUS (Decay At rest Experiment for δcp At a Laboratory for Underground Science) has been proposed to measure the value of the CP violating phase delta through the oscillation of low energy muon anti-neutrinos to electron antineutrinos. With a single large detector, three accelerators at different distances enable the oscillation to be measured with sufficient accuracy. We have proposed the superconducting multi-megawatt DAEδALUS Supercinducting Ring Cyclotron (DSRC) as the means of producing the 800 MeV 12 mA protons required, through the acceleration of H2+, ions with highly efficient stripping extraction. The DSRC comprises twin ion sources and injector cyclotrons, followed by a booster. The injector cyclotron can also be used for a separate experiment, IsoDAR (Isotope Decay At Rest) in which low energy protons produce Lithium 8, and thus a very pure electron antineutrino source which can be used to measure, or rule out, short range oscillation to a sterile neutrino. We describe recent developments in the designs of the injector and the booster, and the prospects for the two experiments.

  The Injector 2 at PSI (Paul Scherrer Institut), is a 72 MeV separate sector cyclotron producing a high intensity proton beam up to 3 mA CW, which is subsequently injected to the 590 MeV Ring Cyclotron. The injection energy of the pre-bunched beam is 870 keV at an intensity of 10 to 11 mA. In this paper we describe a full 3D model of the PSI injector 2, starting just before the two bunchers and including the multi stage collimation scheme in the cyclotron. The precise beam dynamics model is based on the OPAL (Object Oriented Parallel Accelerator Library) simulation code. OPAL is a tool for charged-particle optic calculations in large accelerator structures and beam lines including 3D space charge. The presented model will be validated with data from radial profile measurements and loss rates from the collimators and the electrostatic septum in the Injector 2. Based on this model we will estimate the intensity limit of this machine and comment of future operation modes.
