Paper Abstract

We analyze the "ageing" effect on image sensors introduced by neutrons present in natural (terrestrial) cosmic environment. The results obtained at sea level are corroborated for the first time with accelerated neutron beam tests and for various image sensor operation conditions. The results reveal many fascinating effects that these rays introduce on image sensors.
