3/2/12 SJTU J. Chen 5 Ø The pn junction excited by a constant- current source supplying a current I in the forward direction. Ø The depletion layer narrows and the barrier voltage decreases by V volts, which appears as an external voltage in the forward direction. The pn junction under forward-bias ----
