Paper Title
Radiation Induced Effects On Electrical Characteristics Of Semiconductor Devices

Explosive growth of electronics in current century has made it possible to use electronic systems in radiation environments, such as in nuclear reactors and space systems etc. These environments are prone to radiation wherein a high density of high-energy radiation exists. When semiconductor devices operate in such a high dense radiation environment, the electronics of the space systems observe changes in the electrical characteristics. These changes can have significant effect on the performance of the devices/circuits operating in the radiation environment. Therefore the intent of this paper is to describe intensive investigations of radiation hardness of variety of semiconductor devices have been carried out in order to analyze the performance changes of the individual devices and to find better design strategies Keywords- BJT, Fluence, Ionizing, Induced Effect, Semiconductors.
