Photocathode DC gun to produce a train of electron bunch at high-average current and small emittance is a key component of advanced accelerators for high-power beams. However, DC guns operated at a voltage above 350 kV have suffered from field emitted electrons from a support rod since the development of Lasertron in 1980's. This critical issue has been resolved by a novel configuration, segmented insulator and guard rings, adopted in a DC gun at JAEA and stable application of high voltage at 550 kV has been demonstrated. The gun has been installed at the Compact ERL at KEK and ready for the beam generation. Similar type of DC guns are under development at KEK, Cornell, JLAB and IHEP. In this talk, we present progress in photocathode DC gun for high voltage and small emittance.
