Solution

It is a semiconductor device used to convert photons of solar light into electricity. It generates emf when solar radiation falls on the p-n junction. A p-type silicon wafer of about 300 μm is taken over which a thin layer of n-type silicon is grown on one side by the diffusion process.



Concept: Special Purpose P-n Junction Diodes
