28 2 Junctions and Diodes In summary, the diode equations predict a large current flow under forward bias and a small constant saturation current under reverse bias. This asymmetry resulted because forward bias aids the injection of carriers from each region across the junction. , electrons on the p-side and holes on the n-side). These are few in number and hence only a small current flows under reverse bias. This implies that the more lightly doped side of the junction determines most of the reverse saturation current, which can also be seen from the diode equations.
1 M= 2 M= 3 M= 4 Ei Fig. 10 (a) Illustration of avalanche breakdown process. The incoming electron (wavy arrow) has gained sufficient energy from the field inside the space-charge region such that when it collides with the lattice it is able to free an electron from its bond resulting in the creation of a new electron–hole pair. 36) Thus the depletion region can be quite narrow for high doping levels resulting in the energy bands across the junction region being bent more steeply. When the width of the depletion layer is small enough, tunneling 32 2 Junctions and Diodes Fig.
It is important to discuss some of the limitations of the small-signal parameters presented above: First of all, it is clear that the exponential dependence of the diffusion capacitance cannot be expected to grow indefinitely as the applied bias approaches the built-in potential, just as the ideal diode current (and hence conductance) did not (see Fig. 14). In addition, at large forward bias the depletion layer is effectively eliminated and thus the basis for junction capacitance derived above is 45 This equation has the same form as the capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor with the plates separated by the depletion width.
