The operation of diodes, as described above, can also be described by a special graph called a ‘characteristic curve’. This graphs shows the relationship between the actual currents and voltages associated with the different terminals of the device. An understanding of these graphs helps in understanding how the device operates.
A diode conducts strongly in the direction of the black arrow, and essentially 000 current can flow in the opposite direction. A diode made of silicon has a forward voltage between 0.60−0.75V.
