Based on our experience on photocathode production, we present in this paper the results of the application of different optical diagnostic techniques on fresh and used photocathodes. These techniques allow to study effects like non uniformity, cathode aging, etc. In particular, photocathode optical parameters and QE characterization, both done at different wavelengths, give fundamentals information for the construction of a model of the photoemission process to be applied to Cs2Te photocathodes. These studies are useful for further improving key cathode features, such as its robustness and lifetime as well as to study and control the photocathodes thermal emittance.

The FLASH (DESY-Hamburg) and PITZ (DESY-Zeuthen) photoinjectors routinely use high quantum efficiency (QE) photocathodes produced at LASA (INFN-Milano), since 1998. To further understand the photocathode behavior during beam operation, photocathode QE measurements have been performed at different operating conditions in both RF photoinjectors. The analysis of these measurements will be used to improve the photocathode preparation procedures and to deeper understand the photocathode properties, whose final goal would be the further increase of their lifetime and beam quality preservation during the RF gun operations.

Beginning 2007, a new gun cavity will be installed at the photo injector test facility at DESY in Zeuthen (PITZ). It will be conditioned towards gradients as high as 60 MV/m. This gradient is required for the operation of the European XFEL. Results from the conditioning for high peak power and high duty cycle will be reported.
