Abstract. Peculiarities of heterojunction p-n diode operation in photovoltaic and photodiode modes are considered. An expression for full photodiode current is derived. Advantages and disadvantages of the photodiode operation in photovoltaic and photodiode modes are analyzed.
Keywords: photodiode, voltaic sensitivity, photovoltaic mide, photodiode mode
