AB - Dark current emitted from the surface of high-field RF cavities can contribute to radiation levels and cryo budget and can cause damage to sensitive accelerator components such as the photocathode. The superconducting niobium cavities in the booster module of BERLinPro will have surface fields strong enough to produce significant dark current from field emission, so simulations were made using Astra to track the propagation of emitted electrons from the surfaces of the cavities to examine the effects of dark current in the BERLinPro injector. Results of these simulations, including optimization of the layout to reduce propagation of electrons to the cathode and an estimation of power from dark current deposited throughout the injector, are presented.
