Self-assembled polymer photo-detectors (PPDs) composed of ruthenium complex N3 and PPDs based on thin films of poly(p-phenylene vinlyene) with sulfonated polystyrene are examined for their ability to function in a simulated space radiation environment. Examination of the PPD pre- and post- response data following gamma-ray irradiation ranging in total dose from 10 krad(Si) to 100 krad(Si) are examined. The output photovoltage was observed to decrease for all irradiated devices. The brief study was performed at room temperature and a discussion of the preliminary data and results are presented.
