Abstract

The PN Junction: Long-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
