  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 have been developing a compact accelerator based a laser photocathode rf electron gun at Waseda University. Low emittance and short bunched electron beam can be generated from the gun. Also, the rf transverse deflecting cavity was developed for the bunch length measurement. We performed an experiment for generating a coherent Cherenkov radiation using bunch tilting. The rf transverse deflector can give a tilt for the electron bunch, and the tilt angle was set to the Cherenkov radiating angle which determined by the target refractive index. We successfully demonstrated a coherent Cherenkov radiation and the characterization of the radiation. The principle of coherent Cherenkov radiation generation, the experimental results and future prospective will be presented at the conference.
