  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.

  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.
