Abstract

The PN Junction: Short-Base Depletion Approximation tool is used to approximately calculate, and then graph, the distribution in an p- and n-type junction of : – Charge Density – Electric Field Intensity – Electrostatic Potential – Excess Carrier Concentration – Current Density – Current Density Amplitude – Depletion Width – Max Excess Hole Concentration – Max Excess Electrons Concentration – Junction Capacitance – 1 / C^2
