Performance degradation prediction for space solar cells under irradiation with low-energy electrons is greatly affected by displacement threshold energy (Ed) when a displacement damage dose (DDD) model is used. According to recent studies, the Ed of P atoms is much lower than the conventional Ed value in InP-type solar cells irradiated with low-energy electrons. This indicates that the value of Ed typically used in DDD model leads to significant error in performance degradation prediction. In this study, degradation of AlInGaP solar cells is observed after irradiation with 60 keV electrons. The results suggest that the Ed of P atoms in AlInGaP solar cells is much smaller than the conventionally used Ed value. By using the DDD model with the Ed value obtained in this study, we demonstrated that the performance degradation predicted by the DDD model agrees well with the experimental results.

The displacement damage dose (DDD) for space solar cell is greatly affected by the displacement threshold energy (Ed) during degradation by irradiation with low-energy electrons. In the proposed study, the unpredictable degradation of AlInGaP solar cells in the present DDD model is observed. The findings suggest that the predicted degradation during exposure to low-energy electrons may differ from the actual value. However, it is clarified that if the Ed value is rederived, the nonionizing energy loss can indicate the induced-defect rates in the AlInGaP under irradiation with electrons with a wide range of energy.
