Logarithmic light-meter circuit


Posted on Mar 28, 2013

The meter reading is directlyjproportiona! to the logarithm of the input light power. The logarithmic circuit behavior arises from the nonlineardiode pnjunction current/voltage relationship

The diode in the amplifier output prevents output voltage from becoming negative (thereby pegging the meter), which may happen at low lightlevels due to amplifier bias currents. Rl adjusts the meter full-scale deflection, enabling the meter to be calibrated.
