Kevin Weddle Posted December 7, 2004 Report Share Posted December 7, 2004 I thought I would give this new section a try. What about the diodes barrier potential. We all know that it measured with a meter and the polarity is that of the battery. I have read, though, that since the free electrons move from the N type to the P type, a negative potential appears in the P type while a positive potential appears in the the N type. This means we now have a potential that aids the battery while we measure a potential that opposes the battery. Any suggestions? I just take this for granted becuase I believe this is what happens right at the barrier point and that as you leave the barrier, there is a different polarity.
