<emphasis role="bold">Introduction</emphasis> The junction photodiode that is the focus of this book has been described in detail in many other books and publications. Here only a few basics are given, so that you can use the photodiode effectively in real circuits. A simple model is presented that allows the main characteristics and limitations of real components to be understood. The ability to correctly derive the polarity of a photodiode’s output, guess at what level of output current to expect, and have a …
