Beschrijving

Heavily doped diodes can undergo a different kind of breakdown. In this video let's explore what happens in a very heavily doped diode. The mechanism was first discovered by a man named Zener. So this mechanism is also called, Zener breakdown and the diodes are called Zener diodes. It's a quantum mechanical effect.

Class 12 Physics (India)

It is now time to dive deeper into the world of physics with topics from class 12 (NCERT) such as electrostatics, electricity, magnetism, electromagnetic induction, and electromagnetic waves. Let's also learn more about light with ray optics and wave optics. Finally, let's look at what happened in the last hundred years of physics by getting introduced to …

Zener diode

We usually don't like a diode to undergo reverse breakdown in any circuit. But a special diode called 'Zener diode' is used exclusively in its reverse breakdown region. In this section, we will explore what's special about these so-called 'Zener diodes' and look at its application.
