Asked by Upendra Ks | 8th Nov, 2013, 07:01: PM
The junction diode is useful in a wide variety of applications including the rectification of ac signals (producing dc from ac), the detection of radio signals, the conversion of solar power to electricity, and in the generation and detection of light. It also finds use in a variety of electronic circuits as a switch, as a voltage reference or even as a tunable capacitor. The p-n junction is also the basic building block of a host of other electronic devices, of which the most well-known is the junction transistor.
