Semiconductor Junction Diode


In this video lecture a p-n junction formation and working is explained by using the animation and other scientific tools. As you know that p-n junction is the basic building block of all semiconductor devices. So its understanding is the foundation in the electronics.

If somehow you use the wrong symbols then it is difficult to understand otherwise it

is more enjoyable as all other branches of physics. In the first part of the video lecture the formation of junction diode is explained by using the animation so beginner can also visualize the facts the how depletion region formed and explanation of the diffusion and drift processes.

Viva Questions pn Junction diode Characteristics

Then after the diffusion and drift current on its basis discussed. Understanding of majority and minority charge carriers in n-type and p-type semiconductors and the a new concept of barrier potential is introduced clearly so one can understand it for the future purpose where semiconductor devices are explained on the basis of band structures.

Diode Characteristics

What is the equilibrium condition and when diffusion current equals to the drift current? Answered so many questions which arises to understand the working of p-n junction diode. With the help of proper circuit diagram the V-I characteristics are discussed in both the cases whether that is of forward or reverse biasing.

Here I did also use of dynamic resistance to explain it and shown that in reverse bias the semiconductor diode provide the resistance in mega ohms and because of that current flows in only one direction i.e. the forward biasing. At the last the main application of the semiconductor diode is explained like in Light emitting diode, signal diode, transistor, and in many other electronic devices.
