Abstract

The performance tests were done for a 1.6 cell s-band BNL-type photocathode RF electron gun, GUN-IV, under a condition of 1.5 MW RF power input and 266 nm Nd:YAG laser pulse irradiation. As a result, the maximum energy and the maximum charge/bunch were obtained as 1.6 MeV and 120 pC/bunch, respectively. In addition, a sinusoidal behavior of current with the polarization angle of laser light were measured. Furthermore, the change in current as a function of laser injection phase was measured and reasonably reproduced by a numerical calculation.
