Cyclic photo-phosphorylation in photosynthesis light dependent reaction leads to the formation of ATP and NADPH, and the electrons go from water to PSII to PSI and eventually to NADPH.
In non-cyclic photo-phosphorylation only some ATP is produced and the electrons go from PSII to PSI and back again.
