  An investigation into the effects of the structures and applications of a novel device, which is named as reverse photo resistor. The main potential matter of this device is the resistance variation with illumination. This device is mainly stands upon the photo electricity effect of metals. Severally the photoelectronic device shows the internal resistancedecreasing phenomena with increasing of the light illumination. But here the design of this device have done in such a way, that with increasing of light illumination the device will enhance the internal resistance itself. Because of having the reverse phenomena compared to photoelectric device, this is named as Reverse Photoresistor Device.The intellectual calculations regarding this device have given in this paper to justify properties the device characteristic, by fully theoretically. Mainly the author focused on the electric field generation and current flowing criterion due to external power supply of this device.
