Paper Abstract

AlGaAs light emitting diodes were irradiated in a mixed neutron/gamma environment produced by a research reactor operating at steady state power levels. Changes in the DUTs power and spectral output were measured following an annealing period of 24-30 hours. The LED's total output power decreased with increasing fluence, and the device's spectral output/full width half maximum peaks shifted. Initially, the LED radiated light at two output peak wavelengths of 820 and 890 nm. Following a cumulative irradiation of approximately equals 1016 n/cm2 (GaAs), the second radiation peak was reduced to less than 0.5% of the DUT's total output power, and the lower peak shifted to a longer wavelength of 833 nm.
