All was fine, until the salesman at the local shop told me:. Probably someone has misplaced them, when restocking. Anyway, I purchased them. It was time to do some tests and measurements. LEDs and photo-transistors can be wired in a similar way — using a current-limiting resistor in series. Under certain conditions, they will conduct electricity. When forward-biased, the current through the photo-transistor is proportional to the amount of light.

This leads us to our criteria — the daatsheet through a forward-biased LED is a constant; the current through a forward-biased PT varies with light. To drive the LED, it has to be above 1.

Re-doing the math with these particular values gives the expected current for the LED: The final step was to take a digital multi-meter DMMset it to current measurement, 20mA range and complete the circuit:.

It was a photo-transistor.

Not sure if your confusion about which component is which got resolved. The LED is blue, the phototransistor is clear. You have 2 LEDs in your picture. Chanced upon this post, and while the proper testing of the components to electrically differentiate the two is useful knowledge, but thought it worth mentioning: This is a useful way to verify that an IR remote control is in fact transmitting. Thanks for writing this up!

Photo diodes have always confused me a bit.

Use your smart phone or camera. The image sensors pick up IR! Yes it did checked with a camera. Both pt and led as with photodiodes are composed of pn junctions and should theoretically light up when forward biased to greater than their turn-on voltage.

When a LED is forward biased, it emits light while the transistor switches and amplifies the colector-emitter current if the base-emitter junction is forward biased. So a LED will light daatasheet a phototransistor will not. The devices you present here do not appear to have that characteristic. Note that a reverse biased LED can conduct when light of a suitable wavelength is presented generally centered around the wavelength which that LED emits when normally driven.

This can be useful for driving a darlington or as input to an opamp or inamp.

Mostly harmless… Exploring electronics, programming and photography. A LED or datawheet phototransistor?! IR LED and a photo-transistor – which is which?
