Space solar cell radiation hardness is of fundamental importance in view of the future missions towards harsh radiation environment (like the Jupiter missions) and for the new spacecraft using Electrical Propulsion. In this paper we report the radiation data for triple junction (TJ) solar cells and related component cells. Triple junction solar cells, InGaP top cells and GaAs middle cells degrade after electron radiation as expected. With proton irradiation, a high spread in the remaining…

NIEL Dose Analysis on triple and single junction InGaP/GaAs/Ge solar cells irradiated with electrons, protons and neutrons

Triple junction (InGaP/GaAs/Ge) and single junction (SJ) solar cells were irradiated with electrons, protons and neutrons. The degradation of remaining factors was analyzed as function of the induced

Defect spectroscopy and non-ionizing energy loss analysis of proton and electron irradiated p-type GaAs solar cells

Admittance spectroscopy combined with non-ionizing energy loss (NIEL) analysis is shown to be a powerful tool for analyzing solar cell radiation degradation, not relying on the change of macroscopic

Admittance Spectroscopy on Irradiated GaAs Component Cells: Defect Analysis and Characterization

Temperature-dependent admittance spectroscopy is shown to be a valuable method to perform defect characterization in standardized 2 cm × 2 cm component cells, representative of the individual
