To research the attenuation performance of the AlGaN photocathode, three samples with same structures grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) were activated with three different activation methods, which are Cs-only, Cs-O and Cs-O-Cs activation, respectively. The spectral responses and attenuated photocurrents of three AlGaN photocathodes were measured, the result shows that the Cs-O activated AlGaN photocathode have the lowest attenuation speed in the first few hours, the next are Cs-O-Cs and Cs-only activation, respectively. After the Cs-O-Cs activation sample has attenuated 90 min, its attenuation photocurrent curve is coincident with the Cs-O activation sample in the next measurement. The main factor which affects the photocurrent attenuation is Cs atom desorbed from the photocathodes surface.
