#385 Diodes

As mentioned in the previous blog presence of the potential barrier makes a piece semiconductor display non-symatrical (rectifying) diode-like current-voltage characteristics and the type of the potential barrier determines type of diode. And again, a p-n junction barrier  forms  p-n junction diode, while metal-semiconductor originating potential barrier forms Schottky diode. New message is that this is it as far as types of semiconductor diodes are concerned.
