Last Answer : PN junction of zener diode is heavily doped than ordinary diode. For the occurrence of Zener effect the zener diode is heavily doped. If the zener diode is not heavily doped then Zener effect ... breakdown voltage is sharp. If the diode is lightly doped the diode will have higher breakdown voltage.
