Principle of photodiode operation. Basics of electronics.

Photodiode is a semiconductor diode, which reverse current depends on illumination. As a rule, semiconductor diodes with PN-junction are used as photodiodes.
In photodiode mode PN-junction is shifted by reverse voltage, its value is measured from a few to hundreds of volts ...
