We perform electron beam generation and acceleration of 1 ms long pulse and multi-bunch format at KEK-STF (Superconducting Test Facility). The 1 ms long pulse beam is generated by a normal conducting photo-cathode L-band RF gun. The beam is boosted up to 40 MeV by a super-conducting accelerator. Aim of STF is to establish the super-conducting accelerator technology for ILC (International Linear Collider). The facility is concurrently used to demonstrate high brightness X-ray generation by inverse laser Compton scattering supported by MEXT Quantum Beam project. The RF gun cavity has been fabricated by DESY-FNAL-KEK collaboration. After conditioning process, a stable operation of the cavity up to 4.0 MW RF input with 1 ms pulse was achieved by keeping low dark current. 1 ms pulse generation and acceleration has been confirmed in March 2012. Quasi-monochromatic X-ray generation experiment by Laser-Compton will be carried out at STF from the next coming July. We report the latest status of STF.
