Displacement Damage

Proton Displacement Damage

Exemple of parametric degradation curve

Displacement damage is essentially induced by protons and electrons. An incident proton will create defects by colliding with an atom of the crystal (recoil atom) which provokes damage to the electrical characteristics of certain components and particularly of opto-electronic components and CCD. This test consists in measuring parameter drifts for different proton fluences.
