ABSTRACT
Examines the usable range of a traditional current-to-voltage converter unit with low shunt resistance photodiodes and analyzes the bootstrapping technique. Use of the unit to measure irradiance range at low frequencies used in radiometry; Influence of shunt resistance and applied circuitry on the linearity of photovoltaic quantum detectors.
