Abstract:

The Q-factor technique is a method of describing bipolar transistor gain as a function of the radiation exposure of the device. The ultimate goal of the Q-factor approach is to provide an accurate means of predicting transistor gain as a function of radiation type for various temperature, operating, and measurement conditions. An experimentalanalytical effort is made to screen and acquire the qualitative influences of the intermixed variables. The experi mental phases consists of a series of gamma and two nuclear reactor tests with X-irradiation used to assist in separating surface and bulk damage effects.
