  For several years, cesium telluride photocathodes have been successfully used in the photoinjector of the Free-Electron-Laser FLASH at DESY, Germany. They show a high quantum efficiency and long lifetime and produce routinely thousands of bunches per second with a single bunch charge mostly in the range of 0.3 to 1 nC. Recent studies on lifetime, quantum efficiency, dark current, and operating experience is reported. At DESY, a new preparation system has been set-up. First cathodes have been produced and tested.
