PN Junction Lab - Everything you need to explore and teach the basic concepts of P-N junction devices. Edit the doping concentrations, change the materials, tweak minority carrier lifetimes, and modify the ambient temperature. Then, see the effects in the energy band diagram, carrier densities, net charge distribution, I/V characteristic, etc.

Tutorial on PN Junction Theory and modeling is found on the following link:

Some interesting exercises regarding pn-junction theory and modeling are listed below:
