Difference between forward biasing and reverse biasing

To start the discussion of discussion of difference between forward biasing and reverse biasing, first of all let us discuss the meaning of PN junction diode and biasing:

 The combination of the p-type material or semi-conductor with the n-type semi-conductor results in a PN junction Diode.

 Biasing: The biasing of a diode means to make junction operative. In other words biasing means to connect an external to pn junction diode. The battery can be connected by two methods, one is known as forward biasing and second is known as reverse biasing. Let us discuss them one by one: Continue reading “Difference between forward biasing and reverse biasing”
