The brief concept of EMF (Electromotive Force)

EMF is short form of electromotive force. All the metals contain a large number of free electron which direction inside the metal piece. If battery or voltage source is connected across the metal piece as shown in

What is the formation of PN-Junction?

A P-type and N-type semiconductor are joint together with a help of special fabrication techniques to form a PN-Junction. The terminals are brought out for external connection with P-type and N-type semiconductor. The P side is called
