These are light-sensitive wafers that convert light into electrical energy. They can be used to inject their varying small voltage (or resistance in some situations) into the circuit between the paired bending points. Of course, wired in series these wafers can be used to supply the operating power to an instrument, connected "end to end", just like, but instead of, batteries.
