The degradation of GaAs planar doped barrier diodes subject to neutron irradiation is discussed. It is shown that for fluences as high as 1015 cm-2, the diode characteristics are very well preserved, which strengthens the rationale for using these devices in place of Schottky diodes in harsh working environments such as nuclear instrumentation and space
