A study of radiation damage in copper indium diselenide (CIS) is presented. The build up of extended defects and the conditions for amorphisation have been explored. In particular, dislocation loops have been characterised and the intluence of composition and temperature on amorphisation has been investigated. CIS is a candidate for high-efficiency radiation-hard solar cells for use in extraterrestrial environments.
