Paper Abstract

The radiation response mechanisms operative in space solar cells are described. The effects of electron and proton radiation-induced defects on the cell performance are identified and methods for modeling the radiation response are presented. The space radiation environment is described, and a methodology for modeling the response of a solace cell to exposure to the space radiation environment is presented. It is shown how this model an be used to predict on orbit performance, and examples from space experiments are shown.
