photocurrent in a photodetector illuminated by a small lambertian light source


Caution
Fill in all input cells.
Choose all parameters unit.
It is assumed that the photodetector has a circular active area and that the light source is plane, parallel to he active area and approximately centered on the active area.
All parameters are positive.
