The PN Junction: Long-Base Depletion Approximation tool is used to approximatley 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 Amplitute - Depeletion Width - Max Excess Hole Concentration - Max Excess Electrons Concentration - Junction Capacitance - 1 / C^2


For full details please see Chapter 5 of Streetman's and Banerjee's book " Solid State and Electronic Devices " Sixth Edition.
