Yeah, it does leave a residue but I also saw bits of the photo layer degrading like a burnt out LCD pixel. Maybe it reacts but not corrode.

Oh, and Mistergreen came up with an idea in the DIY PAR meter thread that adding a purple filter gel to reject some of the green, while passing a higher proportion of photosynthetic red/blue, might give results closer to that of a real PAR meter.
Shouldn't it be a green gel to deflect green out? Like chlorophyll although magenta makes sense.
