    Hello,
    I'm searching for a good books of Photodiodes, Theory, circuits,
    experimentations (Engineers level) .... If it's possible to buy them
    directely from the net (as a downloadable e-Book) this will be realy gerat.
    Thanks.
     
  2. electronic lending libraries are wonderful. my local library has an
    electronic copy of "Practical Electronics for Inventors", which has a
    good section on photodiodes.

  3. This one concentrates on amplifier design, rather than photo diode
    characteristics, but it covers that in a cursory manner.

  6. There was a book titled "The Opto-Cookbook" a couple of years back. Not
    only photodiodes, but photoresistors, LEDs and other opto-electronic
    devices as well.
     
  7. Searching amazon.com finds these:

    How about a wide-area PIN photodiode for $0.25 each?

    http://sales.goldmine-elec.com/prodinfo.asp?prodid=8001
    BPW33 Silicon Photodiode - Compact silicon photodiode is almost like
    a tiny silicon solar cell in a plastic 2 pin case. Responds from
    350mm to 1100mm. Has low reverse current (Typ. 20pA). Max sensitivity
    is at 800mm. Open circuit voltage is 440mV. Short circuit current
    is 72µA. Size about .16" W x .22" L x .07" Thick. Prime.

    Or the common S1223 photodiode for $1.00

    http://sales.goldmine-elec.com/prodinfo.asp?prodid=7971
    Large Photo Diode Optical Sensor - Type S1223-01 by Vactec features
    gold plated leads and a T05 size metal case with a top window. Sorry
    we do not have any specs or info, but these are prime new units.
    Output in sunlight is .56V. Size of the active area is about .17" sq.


    Here's a tiny bit of info from my site:
