Title: Proton damage in LEDs with wavelengths above the silicon wavelength cutoff

Abstract: This paper has examined the effects of proton damage on two types of LEDs in the wavelength region above the silicon bandgap limit. Unlike AlGaAs LEDs, the optical power linearity in both types of devices changes significantly after irradiation. This may be caused by the lower heterojunction barriers associated with these materials.
