The IPM accelerator project is developing a 50 MeV linear accelerator as an injector for a terahertz source or an IR FEL. The design specifications require a laser driven photocathode located in one end of a high gradient RF cavity operated at 3 GHz frequency and a solenoid channel for the beam transport. In this work, we report on the RF design of an special photocathode RF gun and its associated focusing channel for the emittance compensation process along the whole injector.
