The beam quality and operational requirements for the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) currently being constructed at SLAC are exceptional, requiring the design of a new RF photocathode gun for the electron source. Based on operational experience at GTF at SLAC, SDL and ATF at BNL and other laboratories, the 1.6cell s-band (2856MHz) gun was chosen to be the best electron source for the LCLS injector, however a significant re-design was necessary to achieve the challenging parameters. Detailed 3-D analysis and design was used to produce nearly-perfect rotationally symmetric rf fields to achieve the emittance requirement. In addition, the thermo-mechanical design allows the gun to operate at 120Hz and a 140MV/m cathode field, or to an average power dissipation of 4kW. Both average and pulsed heating issues are addressed in the LCLS gun design. The first LCLS gun is now fabricated and has been operated with high-power RF. The results and analysis of these high-power tests will be presented.
