Photodiode. This is a type of diode that allows electric current to flow if the light levels are high enough. A diode is an electronic component that acts as a one-way valve for the flow of electric current. Most diodes are semiconductor diodes, made from a combination of semiconductor materials that allow controlled flow of electricity.
