Degeneration of semiconductors in betavoltaic cells

I'm looking to find out what is degenerating in a semiconductor that is being bombarded with beta particles. I know in the low energy tritium beta cells. There is less degeneration because less energy. I know that current is formed by the beta particle making pair holes in the mobile band. Is other electrons filling these gaps and being pulled from other places that is causing the structure to decay? Just a brief summary of this process would probibly help a lot.
