English term or phrase: dark current
Definition from Tyco Electronics Corporation:
The thermally induced current that exists in a photodiode in the absence of incident optical power.

Example sentence(s):
  • This voltage may be as low as 10 mV or as high as 50 V and the dark currents may vary from pA to μA depending upon the junction area and the process used. Dark current is always specified at a particular value of reverse applied voltage. optoelectronics.perkinelmer.com
  • The photodiode noise in is the sum of the thermal noise (or Johnson noise) ij of a resistor which approximates the shunt resistance and the shot noise isD and isL resulting from the dark current and the photocurrent. Hamamatsu Corporation
  • Dark current is dependent on temperature. While dark current may initially be low, it will increase as the device temperature increases. tpub.com

tamna struja

Definition from own experience or research:
Tamna struja je struja koja teče kroz fotoosjetljivi element (fotodiodu, fototranzistor) ili sklop, bez prisustva vanjske pobude (svjetlosti).

Example sentence(s):
  • I kad svjetlo ne upada na fotodiodu, ipak postoji struja. Ona se naziva tamna struja. - medicinska fizika, M. Movre  
  • Kad je tranzistor neosvjetljen njime teče samo vrlo mala tamna struja koju čini preostala struja kolektora reda veličine od nekoliko nanoampera do nekoliko desetaka nanoampera. - wikipedia/Tranzistor  

Ponekad se koristi i izraz struja tame.

Yes  PeregrineFalcon: bogme da:) i meni se osobno više sviđa struja tame, jer to to i jest, ali i drugi naziv je u redu, a eto, i u rječnicima je taj izraz.

  -> Hvala najljepša :) Mi smo na Elektronici1 (druga godina faksa?) govorili struja tame, pa me čudi što nema baš puno poveznica na netu. Ali valjda je i tamna struja u redu, ima smisla :)
