I echo Sanjob Acharya's sentiments. Thank you Michael for sharing your discovery so that we can all think of creative, mathematically-based solutions to make our products better. I also think your mini bio at the end of the article is clever and witty. With nanotechnology advancing forward, low power requirements tightening, the future of electronics will yield phenomenal results...but then what? after everything is THAT microscopic?

@Michael Hughes, well written and nicely explained! Thanks for sharing your experience. Yes, sometimes we tend to ignore or overlook less important (apparently) specs. of the components in order to focus on the major features/ functionalities, which could cause a huge trouble in a crunchy situation

The photo transistors used as sensors are very critical. The optical behaviour to be studied carefully in the application under various lighting conditions. One more issue out of many photo transistors one may have poor leakage specification will lead to failure of detection and the system will behave erratically!
