  Most of the proposed CW guns for free electron lasers use semiconductors as the photocathode due to their high quantum efficiency and potentially low thermal emittance. We manage to establish a model to explain the photoemission of semiconductors with incident photon energy above or below the theoretical threshold and derive the expression for quantum efficiency and thermal emittance. For the incident photon energy near or below the threshold of the cathode, things will be subtle and we should be careful to consider the details we used to neglect. The results of quantum efficiency and thermal emittance agree well with the published work. We also focus on the degradation of the semiconductors and propose a model to examine the development of the thermal emittance. We mainly consider the effect brought by the surface reactions with poisoning gases. The variation of quantum efficiency with time is well-consistent with experiment data. We also present the calculated results of thermal emittance, showing a decline with time. Similar results are presented with typical value of electric field in DC gun and RF gun.

In this paper, experimental results based on THz undulator with widely tunable gap installed at Tsinghua Thomson scattering X-ray (TTX) beamline are introduced. This is a planar permanent magnetic device with 8 regular periods, each 10 cm long. The undulator parameter varies from 9.24-1.39 by changing the magnetic gap from 23mm to 75mm. The coherent undulator radiation can be used as a narrow-band THz source with central frequency ranging from 0.4 THz to 10 THz. The bunch length was figured out from the radiation intensity at different undulator gap, which agreed well with simulations. Furthermore, slice energy modulation was directly observed when high-peak-current bunch trains based on nonlinear longitudinal space charge oscillation passed through the undulator. The demonstrated experiment in THz regime provides a significant scaled tool for FEL mechanism exploration owing to the simplicity of bunch modulation and diagnostics in this range.
