The optoelectronic reliability of representative radioactivity-exposed nanophotodetectors and the degree of functionally tolerable radioactivity-induced responsivity de-emphasis, against increasing cumulative radioactivity-dose, is notionally considered and modelled, with a view towards experimental findings concerning p-i-n photosensors being exposed to regulated successive (α, β)-particle bombardments.
