    Does anybody know a good site about photodiodes?
    I need to find out how they work and where they are used in "real life".

    Try this website:

    http://www.electro-tech-online.com/

    It's like talkbass for electronics dorks (myself included). If you could be more specific about your application it would be easier for us to help you out.

    Thanks guys.
    I'm a student Industrial Engineer (I don't know if this is a good translation). For Physics I need to explain what a photodiode is and how it works (and why it works). I also have to give some examples of "real life" applications that use photodiodes.

    Thx,
