Degradation behavior of LED by $$gamma$$ irradiation

$$gamma$$ irradiation effects on LEDs which were fabricated by different two fabricators and had relatively large amount of light were evaluated toward the development of a radiation-resistant in-water wireless transmission system using visible light. The current-voltage characteristics and total luminous flux of the LEDs were measured before and after the irradiation. After the irradiation, the total luminous flux decreased and the resin lenses turned oxblood. Meanwhile, the current-voltage characteristics hardly changed. These results indicated that the decreases of the total luminous flux of the LEDs were mainly caused by not the degradation of the semiconductor parts but the coloring of the resin parts by the irradiation. On the other hand, the decrease rates of the total lumious fluxes with $$gamma$$ absorbed dose of the LEDs fabricated one fabricator were smaller than the others. Therefore, they are possible candidates for the light emitting devices of the developing in-water transmission system.
