Response of semiconductor devices to radiation

Oshima, Takeshi

Radiation particles such as electrons, protons, and heavy ions exist in space, and semiconductor device installed in space applications such as artificial satellites show the degradation of their electrical performance, and nondestructive and destructive malfunctions by the incidence of such particles. In this article, first of all, radiation environments in space are introduced and then, radiation effects on semiconductor devices (total ionizing dose effect, displacement damage effect, and single event effects) are explained. In addition, as an example of the displacement damage effect, study of radiation degradation mechanism of triple junction solar cells developed for space applications due to proton/electron irradiation is introduced. Also, as an example of single event effects, the recent study of single event transient in Large Scale Integration (LSI) is explained.
