As nouns the difference between electron and photoneutrino

is that electron is (particle) the subatomic particle having a negative charge and orbiting the nucleus; the flow of electrons in a conductor constitutes electricity while photoneutrino is (physics) a neutrino that is produced (along with an antineutrino) when a high-energy photon collides with an electron.
