Abstract : The objectives of the Transient Radiation Effects on Electronics (TREE) Handbook are to (1) provide information about radiation effects on semiconductor devices and materials, (2) provide guidelines for microelectronic radiation hardening technology, and (3) serve as a reference for radiation hardness assurance and microelectronic radiation testing. The radiation environments addressed in this handbook include those produced by nuclear weapons effects (NWE) and natural space. The NWE environment includes x rays, gamma rays, and neutrons. The natural space environment includes photons and electrons trapped in the Van Allen belt, and neutrons, heavy ions, and cosmic rays found in space.
