  Kyoto University Free Electron Laser (KU-FEL) is a mid-infrared FEL driven by a compact linac utilizinig a thermionic RF gun as its electron source*. Recently we succeeded in operating KU-FEL with photocathode operation of the RF gun by using the thermionic cathode (LaB6) as a photocathode. The performance of KU-FEL under the thermionic cathode and photocathode operation will be reported. In addition, some recent application experiment results will also be presented in this presentation.

  We are developing a new compact accelerator system to generate a high power terahertz (THz) radiation at the Institute of Advanced Energy, Kyoto University. THz radiations are produced by injecting ultra-short and intense electron pulses to a short plannar undulator. The bunch compression characteristic by the newly installed chicane was investigated by observation of a coherent part of an optical transition radiation (OTR). As the result, the chicane can compress the electron bunch at the laser injection phase from 10 to 40 degree. The beam energy and relative rms energy spread were also measured and the results were 4.6 MeV and 1.3 %, respectively.

Monochromatic gamma-ray beam in MeV energy region is suitable for non-destructive inspection of high density and massive objects because of its high penetrability. A specific nuclide can be detected by the process of Nuclear Resonance Fluorescence (NRF). A non-destructive inspection of Special Nuclear Materials hidden in a container cargo using NRF is proposed by Bertozzi*. Non-destructive detection of Pu inside of a spent nuclear fuel rod is also proposed for management of radioactive wastes, nuclear material accounting and safeguards**. We have developed 2D NRF imaging by using quasi-monochromatic gamma-ray beam in MeV energy region generated by Laser Compton Backscattering (LCS) method*** and proposed to develop an NRF-CT image in the ELI-NP where a high intensity LCS beam can be available in near future. To demonstrate and finalize the measurement system of the NRF-CT imaging by using LCS gamma-ray beam, we have started a study on NRF-CT imaging at the new LCS beamline in UVSOR. The LCS beamline can generate 5.4 MeV LCS gamma-rays with a flux of 1×107 photons/s. We have measured the 5.291 MeV NRF gamma-rays from a lead target in this beamline and tried to take a NRF-CT image.

  Recently, thermionic cathode materials such as LaB6, Ir5Ce and dispenser cathodes have been also used as photocathode since they have low work function, reasonably high quantum efficiency, and long lifetime*,**. However, the effect of cathode temperature and laser wavelength on quantum efficiency is known only for limited conditions. Although it is expected to be able to lengthen the required wavelength of photocathode drive laser by heating cathodes, laser with photon energy under the work function has not been tested. Revealing them enables us to design the cost minimum accelerators. In this research, photoemission properties of LaB6 and CeB6 with various excitation photon energies will be investigated under various temperatures of the materials. Those materials have similar work function, but CeB6 have one order of magnitude smaller Richardson constant than LaB6***. By comparing photoemission properties of these materials, impact of Richardson constant on the photoemission properties will be investigated.
