Abstract
The stability for reflection-mode GaN photocathode has been investigated by monitoring the photocurrent and the spectral response at room temperature. We watch that the photocurrent of the cathode decays with time in the vacuum system, and compare the spectral response curves after activation and after degradation. The photocurrent decay mechanism for reflection-mode NEA GaN photocathode was studied by the surface model [GaN (Mg) :Cs]:O-Cs. The reduction of the effective dipole quantity, which is caused by harmful gases, is the key factor of the photocurrent reduction.
