An experimental concept is presented for specifically characterizing GaAs monolithic integrated optic (I0) structures exposed to the space parameters of temperature and radiation. The experiment will measure space radiation and temperature effects during a polar orbit mission. Of particular interest are two monolithic structures, a four port active GaAs optical switch and GaAs channel waveguides. The experiment utilizes apparatus designed for AFWL Experiment #701 1-3 currently in space orbit. Prediction of the space effects on IO devices are presented under varying irradiation levels, temperature extremes and other adverse space effects.
