Name the device which converts the change in intensity of illumination to change in electric current
flowing through it. Plot I-V characteristics of this device for different intensities. State any two applications of this device.
ANS 3 Photodiodes are used to detect optical signals of different
intensities by changing current flowing through them.
Applications of photodiodes:
1. In detection of optical signals.
2. In demodulation of optical signals.
3. In light operated switches.
4. In speed reading of computer punched cards.
5. In electronic counters
