Abstract : The report discusses exploratory testing and data analyses. A proposed model for the annealing of lithium solar cells is presented. In addition, new data showing the energy dependence of proton and electron damage in lithium-doped silicon and the annealing of such damage are presented. New data also indicate that simultaneous irradiations with protons and electrons produce synergistic effects. These effects may product either more or less damage than the sum of the separate environment depending on the relative electron-to-proton fluences. (Modified author abstract)
