Vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) have high potential for space applications, yet little is known of their sensitivity to radiation under vacuum conditions. The first observations of a commercially available proton implanted quantum well AlGaAs VCSEL operating at 850 nm in vacuo and irradiated by 4.5 MeV protons by a scanning ion microbeam is presented. Degradation of L-I-V responses at a proton dose of 1.19 MGy are discussed with particular attention drawn to heating arising from increased nonradiative carrier recombination and that resulting from the vacuum environment
