What is Diode and its types with Applications

p-N junction diode

What is Diode

Diode is electrical device which allows current to flow in one direction.
In one direction diodes are having ideally zero resistance. In other direction identically infinite resistance.

Applications of Diodes

Diodes are generally used to direct the current in circuit.
Diodes makes rectifier circuits i.e, half wave rectifier, full wave rectifier and bridge wave rectifiers are included.
Its useful in LC filters, π filters and many type of filters.
It is also used in Clipping circuits, Clamping circuits and voltage multiplier circuits.
