Pn junction is one of the most important structures in today’s semiconductor technology used in transistors, FET and many types of integrated circuits. In our previous articles, we have seen  p-n junction formation from a p-type and n-type semiconductor and Semiconductor electronics. We have also learned about diffusion current, drift current and depletion region. Here we are going to explain how p-n junction diode characteristics. [Image source] P-n junction diode: To understand the behavior of p-n junction we make it conducting by applying an external voltage over a range of 0v, 5v, 10v and determine how the current passed through Read More …
