A photronic cell is defined as a photovoltaic cell usually sensitive to infrared radiation. It may
have a copper or iron base and a film of cuprous oxide or selenium respectively. When it is illuminated, photo-voltage is
The WESTON PHOTRONIC CELL - Model 594 from the Science Line collection is described as following: “The Weston photronic cell consists of a small box containing an iron disk thinly coated with the rare element selenium. When electromagnetic radiation in the
form of light waves falls on this surface it sets up a potential difference between the iron and the selenium, which in turn causes a minute electric current to flow through the sensitive micro ammeter
connected between them. The magnitude of this current is proportional to the intensity of the light, and it can be used as a measure.
