Overall - a superb technical illiteracy. Can't argue with you, sorry.

I had realised that you can't argue with me, and yes you do display exactly the illiteracy you talk about.

BTW, the term "charge" is used for capacitance and is measured in Culons or Farades as in capacitors, not light sensitive diodes output , which is voltage/current.

'Coulombs' (for that is what it is) is the unit of charge. 'Farads' (for that is what they are) are the unit of capacitance. They are not the same thing, but related by the formula Q=CV - i.e. the charge is equal to the capacitance times the voltage. Maybe best to work those out before trying to explain how a sensor works.

Bob, this is hopeless.
