Photodiodes are electrical components that convert incident light to electric current. The photodiode consists of a positive electrode, a P-layer, a neutral layer, and an N-layer followed by a negative electrode. When light hits the P-layer, electrons in its crystal structure are excited and, in an electric field, accelerate toward the N-layer, creating a current. Photodiodes are cheap; there may be several diodes in a single instrument. Photodiodes can also be wavelength-discriminative; different diodes are used for different wavelengths.
