3MeV proton irradiation effects on InGaP single junction and InGaP/GaAs two junction cells were studied. The degradation of electrocal properties for InGaP cells was smaller than that for InGaP/GaAs cells. The results of the measurement of spectral response showed the large degradation in long wavelength. This indicates that GaAs cell degrades. The Damage coefficient of minority carrier diffusion length was estimated to be 7.9$$times$$10$$^{-5}$$ for InGaP and 1.6$$times$$10$$^{-4}$$ for GaAs. These values of the damage coefficient for InGaP and GaAs are 580 times and 280 times larger than those for InGaP and GaAs irradiated with 1MeV electrons.
