Voltage buildup in a semiconductor diode due to a DC forward current step

  • I. M. Muratov
  • K. M. Kul'kin


The authors discuss the potentials in the p-n junction and base of a planar diode produced by a current step from zero to I. Approximate equations are derived for the voltages at the start. It is assumed that the base region is of finite size.
