GaAs solar cells with the lower base carrier concentration under low energy proton irradiations had shown experimentally the better radiation-resistance. Analytical model based on fundamental approach for radiative and non-radiative recombination has been proposed for radiation damage in GaAs sub-cells. The radiation resistance of GaAs sub-cells as a function of base carrier concentration has been analyzed by using radiative recombination lifetime and damage coefficient for minority carrier lifetime. Numerical analysis shows good agreement with experimental results. The effect of carrier concentration upon the change of damage constant and carrier removal rate have been studied.
