Description : What is the difference between forward and reverse bias?

Last Answer : Forward bias is a PN junction bias which allows current to flow through the junction. Forward bias decreases the resistance of the depletion layer. Reverse bias is a PN junction bias that allows only ... Positive polarity on the n-type material and negative polarity to the p-type material.

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.
