Uses of a Diode
Diodes are semiconductor devices that effectively block current in one direction while allowing current flow in the other. An ideal diode, therefore, acts like a switch that is open in one direction and closed in the other. Diodes are enclosed in cases...
In electronics, a diode is a two-terminal electronic component that conducts
primarily in one direction (asymmetric conductance); it has low (ideally zero) ...
If the voltage across a diode is negative, no current can flow*, and the ideal diode
looks like an open circuit. In such a situation, the diode is said to be off or ...

A diode is an electrical device allowing current to move through it in one direction
with far greater ease than in the other. The most common kind of diode in ...
A diode is a specialized electronic component with two electrodes called the
anode and the cathode. Most diodes are made with semiconductor materials
Forward biasing the p-n junction drives holes to the junction from the p-type
material and electrons to the junction from the n-type material. At the junction the
