  KEK has been developing a superconducting RF gun for CW ERL since 2013. The SRF gun is a combination of a 1.3 GHz, 1.5-cell superconducting RF cavity and a backside excitation type photocathode. The photocathode consists of transparent substrate MgAl2O4, transparent superconductor LiTi2O4 and bi-alkali photocathode K2CsSb. The reason for using transparent superconductor is to reflect RF by using the feature of penetration depth of superconductor, which is defined from London equation. It protects optical components from RF damage. The critical DC magnetic field of the cathode, quantum efficiency and initial emittance were measured. These show the cathode can be used for the SRF gun. The gun cavity was designed to satisfy the photocathode operation. Eight vertical tests of the gun cavity have been performed. The surface peak electric field reaches to 75 MV/m with the dummy cathode rod which was made of bulk niobium.

We have developed a DC gun test stand at National Institutes for Quantum Radiological Science and Technology (QST) for high current electron beam generation. The gun test stand consists of an alkali antimonide photocathode preparation chamber, a DC gun with a 250kV-50mA Cockcroft Walton high voltage power supply, and beam line with a water cooled beam dump to accommodate 1.5 kW beam power. We successfully fabricated a Cs3Sb photocathode with quantum efficiency of 5.8 % at 532 nm wavelength and generated 150 keV beam with current up to 4.3 mA with 500 mW laser at 532 nm wavelength. Unfortunately, we encountered a vacuum incident during beam transport of high current beam and the development has been halted. We will fix the vacuum problem and restart the gun development as soon as possible.

Non-magnetized bunched electron cooling of ion beams during low energy RHIC operation requires electron beam energy in the range of 1.6-2.6 MeV, with an average current up to 45 mA, very small energy spread, and low emittance. A 400 kV DC gun equipped with a photocathode and laser system will provide a source of high-quality electron beams. During DC gun test critical elements of LEReC such as laser beam system, cathode exchange system, cathode QE lifetime, DC gun stability, beam instrumentation, the high-power beam dump system, machine protection system and controls has been tested under near- operational conditions [1]. We present the status, experimental results and experience learned during the LEReC DC gun beam testing.

  The 59th ICFA Advance Beam Dynamics Workshop on Energy Recovery Linacs, hosted by the CERN was held on CERN campus. The working group (WG) 1 ERL injectors focused on high-brightness, high-power CW electron gun and high QE long lifetime semiconductor photocathode. The working group 1 was separated into two sessions: One is electron gun session, which has eight invited talks; another is photocathode session, which has six invited talks and one contributed talk. This report summarizes the state of the art of electron guns and photocathodes discussed in the ERL workshop WG1.
