    For a photodiode, the series resistance is due to the contact
    resistance (as one factor), but what is the source of a photodiode
    shunt resistance? Is it simply due to the inherent resistence of the
    junction to the current flow due to diffusion in photovoltaic mode and
    drift currents in photoconductive mode?
