The usual (i.e., under dark conditions) V-I characteristic for diode is shown in Fig. 4 by the dashed line that passes through the origin (see eq. (1)). Figure 4. V-I characteristic curves of a photo-diode under dark (------) and illuminated ( ___ ) conditions. When the optical generation current, I op is introduced , the nature of the characteristic curve is modified. In the illuminated condition, the curve passes through the fourth quadrant also. When the circuit is open, I=0, using applied reverse bias is also zero, the potential across the junction due to optical generation of electron – hole pairs, become V oc ( as like V) and one can write from eq.
