AB - The drive beam of CLIC requires unusually high peak and average currents which is challenging for the electron source. As an alternative to the thermionic electron gun foreseen in the baseline design, a photoinjector option is under study at CERN using the PHIN photoinjector, which was designed for a bunch charge of 2.3 nC and 1200 ns train length. During operation with nominal train length in 2014, a large pressure increase in the vacuum system, attributed to a heating of the Faraday cup, caused a degradation of the photocathode. To overcome this problem a vacuum window has been installed to separate the Faraday cup from the rest of the vacuum system. In addition the train length has been further increased to 1600 ns to advance the beam parameters towards CLIC requirements. In this paper recent improved photocathode lifetime measurements carried out under these new conditions will be presented and compared with earlier measurements. Furthermore, the utilized Cs2Te cathode has been analyzed with X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) before and after its usage in PHIN to get a better understanding of photocathode surface deterioration effects, which will also be discussed.
