Sensor to detect Laser Diode?
(I might have posted this in the wrong area of the form.)
I want to make a laser maze with a couple lasers, mirrors and a photo cell to sense the laser and when it has been broken, i.e. someone got infront of the light beam somewhere.
My question is - Can I use the Photo cell (CdS photoresistor) to detect the laser light or will the laser burn the photoresistor out?
If not the Photo cell what can I use to sense the laser light?
Thank you in advance.
