This collaborative study, carried out by four European metrological laboratories, presents a systematic study of the spectral responsivity of 100 mm2 Si photodiodes of the photovoltaic type. Its objectives were to quantify their stability, investigate the influence of the manufacturing process and of the use and storage conditions, and identify possible causes of instability. Two types of photodiodes were shown to be well suited for use as transfer standards in radiometry, photometry and colorimetry applications.
