Pn Junction : Basic theory

formation of pn junction image

Pn junctions are formed by joining two different type of semiconductor material i.e. p-type semiconductor on one side and n-type semiconductor on another side. In this article, we are going to explain you about p-n juenction formation, phenomena of p-n junction formation and basic equations. Have a look at it. It is discovered by the American physicist Russell Ohl at Bell laboratories. In p-type semiconductor holes are majority carriers and electrons are minority carriers while in n-type semiconductor electrons are majority carriers and holes are minority carriers i.e. one end has excess of electrons and other has excess of holes. P-n Read More …

Difference between BJT and FET

FET Vs BJT image

BJT and FET both are made up of different semiconductor materials mainly P type and N type. These transistors are basically used for the designing of oscillators, amplifiers, and switches. In our last articles, we explain in detail how to use a transistor as a switch, amplifier and as an oscillator.
