KEK-STF is doing R&D of Super-Conducting (SC) accelerator technology for ILC (International Linear Collider), based on 1.3 GHz RF system. For STF and ILC, the pulse length is 1ms and the repetition is 5Hz. We developed a L-band Normal-Conducting RF gun designed by DESY to provide electron beam over such long pulse duration. For NC Photo-cathode RF gun, such high duty and long pulse operation is a challenging task, because the detuning by the heat load of cavity dissipation power is significant. The RF gun provides the electron pulse train to SC accelerator modules which will be operated at 31.5 MV/m gradient. Precise RF control is essential for SC accelerator because the beam loading and input RF power should be well ballanced for a stable operation. The beam test to demonstrate the stable opeation is very important for SC accelerator R&D. The system is also used to demonstrate high-flux quasi-monochromatic X-ray generation by inverse Compton scattering at KEK-STF. The experiment is carried out from April 2012 to November 2012 at KEK-STF. We report the latest status of the multi-bunch generation by the RF gun.
