  • Also called photoresistor, photocells, photoconductor and photo conducting cell

LDR stands for the light-dependent resistor or a photoresistor is basically a resistor whose resistance decreases with an increase in incident light intensity(photoconductivity).


A photoresistor is made up of high resistance semiconductor material. If the light falling on the LDR is of high enough frequency and energy density photons get absorbed by the semiconductor gives band electrons enough energy to jump to the conduction resulting in free-electron conduct electricity lowering resistance.


<p>LDR is made of Semiconductor materials with high Resistance like Silicon or Germanium. It is a light-sensitive device so this resistor has a different resistance value in day and night as given below



It requires less power to operate
