Abstract

Superior radiation resistance of In 1-xGa xN alloys were investigated. The energy gap of In 1-xGa xN alloys was varied from 0.7 to 3.4 eV. The optical and electronic properties of the alloys exhibit high resistance to high-energy proton irradiation. Results show that the alloys offer potential for radiation-hard high-efficiency solar cells for space applications.
