Photocathode research in the frame of the "transmission" photocathode conception (backside illuminated cathode based on a quartz/sapphire plate or a metal mesh which is a substrate for thin film made of a photomaterial) is being conducted in the Veksler and Baldin Laboratory of High Energy physics (LHEP) of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR). Status of the 30-kev DC Photogun test bench and recent results of the extremely thin carbon film based cathodes research are described.
