One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A boundary between p-type and n-type material in a semiconductor device, functioning as a rectifier.
- ‘The carriers are arranged adjacently in such a way that the line-shaped emission regions of the diode lasers are adjacent in series and the p-n junction planes extend parallel to the thermal contact surfaces.’
- ‘After the wells are ‘dug’ with an etching technique, their insides are coated with a material to form a p-n junction just a tenth of a micron thick, which is the best thickness to induce a current.’
- ‘When an electric current flows across the p-n junction, electrons and holes recombine, emitting photons.’
