The next generation light source such as X-ray FEL oscillator requires high brightness electron gun with megahertz repetition rate. We have developed a DC photoemission electron gun at JAEA for the compact energy recovery linac (cERL) light source under construction at KEK. This DC gun employs a segmented insulator with guard rings to protect the insulator from field emission generated from central stem electrode. We have successfully applied 500-kV on the ceramics with a cathode electrode in place and generated beam from the 500kV DC photoemission gun in October 2012. Details of the beam generation test will be presented.
