This review paper discusses radiation effects in a variety of optoelectronic devices. The main emphasis is on displacement and total dose damage under conditions that are representative of various space missions. However, the mechanisms for degradation in space are also applicable to other environments, such as nuclear reactors, and the extremely high-energy particles associated with the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. In addition to permanent damage effects, there is also an abbreviated treatment of single-event effects in optoelectronic devices.
