Q1. How does increased doping level convert normal diode into Zener diode? Q2.And then how does increasing doping concentration in Zener reduces its breakdown voltage? What particular changes are brought in diode by doping so that it changes normal diode to Zener?

    The diodes designed to work in breakdown region are called Zener diodes.If the reverse voltage exceeds the breakdown voltage, the Zener diode will normally not be destroyed as long...

    Read it carefully, I think you will get your all answer. The width of the depletion region in a p-n junction diode is inversely proportional to the doping concentration of the n an...

    When you increase doping concentration, then width of depletion region decreases. This width is the characteristic which decide whether zener breakdown will occur or Avalanche brea...
