Saturation Current in PN Junction Diode Calculation

A p-n junction is a interface between p-type and n-type semiconductor material. In this calculator, you can calculate the saturation current (Io) flow through the p-n junction diode based on Band theory.

Formula:

Io = e ni2 * A((De / Le * Na) + (Dh / Lh * Nd)) Where, Io = Saturation Current e = Electronic Charge ni = Intrinsic Carrier Concentration A = Area of Junction De = Electron Diffusion Coefficients Le = Electron Diffusion Lengths Na = Acceptor Concentrations Dh = Hole Diffusion Coefficients Lh = Hole Diffusion Lengths Nd = Donor Concentrations
