Class 12 Physics Semiconductor Electronics Application of junction diode as a Rectifier

Application of junction diode as a Rectifier

  • Rectifier is a device which is used for converting alternating current or voltage into direct current or voltage
  • A p-n junction diode can be used as a half-wave and full-wave rectifier
  • The resistance of a p-n junction diode becomes low when forward biased and becomes high when reverse biased. This is the principle of the working of rectifier
