    100% of 100
    SKU: SEN-09088 Brand: Sparkfun Guides (1)
    This is a very small light sensor. A photocell changes (also called a photodetector, photo resistor, CdS or photoconductive cell) resistance depending on the amount of light it is exposed to. These little sensors make great ambient light triggers (when light in the room turns on, do something).

    Rating:
    100% of 100
    SKU: SEN-09768 Brand: Sparkfun
    The TSL235R light-to-frequency converter outputs a square wave (50% duty cycle) with frequency directly proportional to light intensity (irradiance). The device has been temperature compensated for the ultraviolet-to-visible light range of 320 nm to 700 nm and responds over the light range of 320 nm to 1050 nm.

  8. Photodiode
    Rating:
    100% of 100
    SKU: FIT0180 Brand: DFRobot
    This photodiode is made out of environment-friendly materials(no Cadmium and Lead) compared with the traditional CDS photoresistor. It can be used to generate a current when light hits the body of the diode. Depending on your project, this can be easier to work with than a photoresistor.
