Unformatted text preview: Experiment 3: Silicon Diodes Introduction: The purpose of this lab report is to inform the lab assistant that I’ve worked through the lab and gained an adequate amount of experience in doing so. The information in this lab deals with measuring and studying the voltage across diodes in a series of circuits. Objective : The main objective of this lab is to study the characteristics and applications of silicon diodes. Procedures: First, we connected a diode and a 1k resistor in series on the Ω breadboard. The diode being connected to the input and the 1k resistor to Ω ground. We placed the output in between the diode and the 1k resistor. We Ω then measured the voltages varying between -10v to 10v by increasing the voltages by 1v increments. Through using the voltmeter, we measured the given output voltages. Second, we connect the 1k resistor and the diode in series on the Ω breadboard. The 1k resistor being connected to the input and the diode Ω grounded. As before, we placed the output in between the components and measured the output voltages varying between -10v to 10v by using the voltmeter by increasing the voltages by 1v increments. By using the voltmeter, we then measured the given output voltage 1 Lastly, we connect a 1k resistor to two diodes in parallel, opposite directions. The 1k resistor Ω Ω connected to the input and the diodes grounded. The output was placed in between the 1k resistor and the diodes in parallel. By using the voltmeter,resistor and the diodes in parallel....
