To improve the performance of GaAs NEA photocathodes, an exponential-doping structure GaAs material has been put forward, in which from the GaAs bulk-to-surface doping concentration is distributed gradiently from high to low. We apply this exponential-doping GaAs structure to the transmission-mode GaAs photocathodes. This sample was grown on the high quality p-type GaAs (100) substrate by MBE with p-type Be doping. We have calculated the band-bending energy in exponential-doping GaAs emission-layer, and the total band-bending energy is 59 meV which helps improve the photoexcited electrons movement towards surface for the thin epilayer. The integrated sensitivity of the two exponential-doping GaAs photocathode samples with different thickness reaches 1228uA/lm and 1547uA/lm respectively.
