Diodes are made from semiconductor materials, mainly silicon, with various compounds (combinations of more than one element) and metals added depending on the function of the diode. Early types of semiconductor diodes were made from Selenium and Germanium, but these diode types have been almost totally replaced by more modern silicon designs.
Diode behavior is analogous to the behavior of a hydraulic device called a check valve. A check valve allows fluid flow through it in only one direction.
