3.NJIT ECE-271 Dr. S. Levkov Diode Introduction A diode is formed by joining an n -type semiconductor with a p -type semiconductor. A pn junction is the interface between n and p regions. Study of diodes will consist of three sections: 1. PN-junction physics 2. Diode circuits analysis 3. Diode applications Diode symbol Chap 3 - 3

4.A simple (or doped) semiconductor does not in itself possess properties that make it useful for electronic circuits. 1. The pn junction NJIT ECE-271 Dr. S. Levkov Chap 3 - 4

5.A simple (or doped) semiconductor does not in itself possess properties that make it useful for electronic circuits. However, when a section of p- type material and a section of n- type material are brought in contact to form a pn junction , a number of interesting properties arise. 1. The pn junction NJIT ECE-271 Dr. S. Levkov Chap 3 - 5

6.A simple (or doped) semiconductor does not in itself possess properties that make it useful for electronic circuits. However, when a section of p- type material and a section of n- type material are brought in contact to form a pn junction , a number of interesting properties arise. The major effect happens in the small section around the contact area – depletion region , where the holes and electrons recombine leaving no charge carriers. 1. The pn junction NJIT ECE-271 Dr. S.

8.NJIT ECE-271 Dr. S. Levkov pn Junction Electrostatics Donor and acceptor concentration on either side of the junction. Concentration gradients give rise to diffusion current - I D Chap 3 - 8

9.NJIT ECE-271 Dr. S. Levkov Space-Charge (Depletion) Region at the pn Junction Chap 3 - 9 If the diffusion process was to continue unabated, this would result eventually in the uniform concentration of e . & h . through the entire semiconductor and pn junction would disappear. This does not happen because the competing process appears that oppose the diffusion current. As holes diffuse from p -region they leave (-) ionized atoms of acceptors. As electrons diffuse from n -region they leave (+)ionized atoms of donors This creates the space-charge or depletion region with localized (-) and (+) charge  electric field E ( x ) drift current that oppose the diffusion current.

10.NJIT ECE-271 Dr. S. Levkov Drift Currents Gauss’ Law: an electric field due to the charge distribution is Assuming constant permittivity* and one dimension Resulting electric field gives rise to a drift current I S of minority carriers. With no external circuit connections, drift and diffusion currents cancel : I S = I D . (There is no actual current, since this would imply power dissipation, rather the electric field cancels the diffusion current ‘tendency.’) The equilibrium condition is maintained by the barrier voltage V 0, or , in another words, junction potential . *In electromagnetism,  permittivity  is the measure of how much resistance is encountered when forming an electric field in a medium Chap 3 - 10

12.NJIT ECE-271 Dr. S. Levkov Width of Depletion Region From the previous expressions, the expression for the width of the space-charge region, or depletion region can be obtained. It is called the depletion region since the excess holes and electrons are depleted from the dopant atoms on either side of the junction. Chap 3 - 12

13.NJIT ECE-271 Dr. S. Levkov Example 1. Width of Depletion Region Problem: Find built-in potential and depletion-region width for given diode Given data :On p -type side: N A = 10 17 /cm 3 on n -type side: N D = 10 20 /cm 3 Assumptions : Room-temperature operation with V T = 0.025 V Analysis: with  Chap 3 - 13

20.When an external battery is connected across a pn junction, the amount of current flow is determined by the polarity of the applied voltage and its effect on the space–charge region. When the battery polarity is applied in the same direction as barrier voltage we say that a pn junction is in reverse bias . When the battery polarity is applied in the opposite direction to barrier voltage we say that a pn junction is in forward bias .

27.The pn junction in reverse bias The free electrons in the n –type material are attracted toward the positive terminal of the battery and away from the junction, creating new holes and the positive charge on the right of depletion region becomes even more positive. The holes from the p –type material are attracted toward the negative terminal of the battery and away from the junction, creative negatively charged ions, and the negative charge on the left of depletion region becomes more negative. As a result, the space–charge region at the junction becomes effectively wider, and the potential gradient increases until it approaches the potential of the external battery. NJIT ECE-271 Dr. S.

28.The pn junction in reverse bias The free electrons in the n –type material are attracted toward the positive terminal of the battery and away from the junction, creating new holes and the positive charge on the right of depletion region becomes even more positive. The holes from the p –type material are attracted toward the negative terminal of the battery and away from the junction, creative negatively charged ions, and the negative charge on the left of depletion region becomes more negative. As a result, the space–charge region at the junction becomes effectively wider, and the potential gradient increases until it approaches the potential of the external battery. Current flow is then extremely small because no voltage difference ( electric field ) exists across either the p –type or the n –type region. NJIT ECE-271 Dr. S. Levkov Chap 3 - 28 - + + + + - - - +
