Theory of PN Diodes
This set of slides is intended to explain the operation of a PN diode to students. The following topics will be covered: ideal diodes, non-idealities in the behavior of diodes, such as generation-recombination mechanisms and the breakdown of diodes, the operation of a PN diode in an AC circuit.
