High-brightness and high-current electron guns for the future light sources such as energy recovery linac light sources and high repetition rate X-ray free electron lasers require exit beam energy of 500 keV or more to reduce space charge induced emittance growth in a drift space from the gun exit to the following superconducting accelerator entrance. At Japan Atomic Energy Agency, we have developed a DC photoemission gun employing a segmented insulator to mitigate the field emission problem, that is a major obstacle for the DC gun from being operated at 500 kV or more. Recent results of generating 500 keV electron beam with current up to 1.8 mA is presented.
