the liquid junctions represent a n-type and p-type semiconductor, most likely in liquid state.

The junction, when connected to a external circuit causes electrons to flow through the circuit once its exposed to sunlight (UV radiation).
This is how they make solar cells.

This isn't in the chemistry syllabus, rather the physics one.
