The next generation light source such as X-ray FEL oscillator requires high brightness electron gun with megahertz repetition rate. We have developed a photoemission DC gun at JAEA. By employing a segmented insulator with rings which guard the ceramics from field emission, we successfully applied 500-kV on the ceramics with a center stem electrode for eight hours without any discharge in 2009. This high voltage testing was performed with a simple configuration without NEG pumps and electrodes. In 2011 we reached 526-kV with NEG pumps and electrodes, before suffering another field emission problem from the cathode electrode. The problem may be attributed to small dust inside our gun chamber. We found wiping the cathode electrode with a lint free tissue could remove the field emission site effectively. Noble gas conditioning is also planned to remove the emission site without air exposure of the gun chamber.
