Abstract RF guns have been proven to deliver high brightness beams and therefore appear attractive as electron source for a linear collider. Only so far no polarized beams have been produced. To create a polarized electron beam GaAs NEA cathodes are used. Operating rf guns with a NEA cathode poses concerns in three areas, oxidation by residual gas, ion bombardment, and electron bombardment. In this paper we report about an attempt to reduce the vacuum pressure inside the gun by cooling it to cryogenic temperatures. Furthermore the energy deposition by ions will be quantified.
