The superconducting rf photoinjector (SRF photoinjector) is one of the latest application of SC technology in the accelerator field. Since superconducting cathodes with high QE are not available up to now, normal conducting cathode material is the main choice for the SRF photoinjectors. However, the compatibility between the cathode and the cavity is one of the challenges for this concept. The SRF gun with Cs2Te cathode has been successfully operated under the collaboration of BESSY, DESY, FZD, and MBI. In this paper, some experience gained in the gun commissioning will be concluded. The results of the properties of Cs2Te photo cathodes in the cavity will be presented, such as the Q.E., life time, regeneracy, dark current and thermal emittance. At the same time, the cavity quality is showed to be steady before and after the cathode working.
