Several people have posted asking about "particularly energetic photons."  The more energy a photon has, the more its wavelength shifts toward the blue.  So there is no such thing as particularly energetic 633 nm (red) photon for instance.  All photons at a given wavelength have the same energy.

Good point, OpticsEngineer.  So I guess we are talking about a photon of particularly short wavelength/high frequency.

In other words, ultra-violet.

What is the UV sensitivity of the sensor?
