equivalent fluence


ECSS-E-ST-10-04C Rev.1


quantity which attempts to represent the damage at different energies and from different species


  • NOTE 1 For example: For solar cell degradation it is often taken that one 10 MeV protons is 'equivalent' to 3 000 electrons of 1 MeV. This concept also occurs in consideration of Non-ionizing Energy Loss effects (NIEL).
  • NOTE 2 Damage coefficients are used to scale the effect caused by particles to the damage caused by a standard particle and energy.
