P-N junction -

When p-type semiconductor is mixed with N-type semiconductor, P-N junction formed

 

- wherein

There is a very thin region (of the order of the micrometre) called deputation region.

 

 Since there is no hole or electron available in depletion region and hence it has a high electric resistance.
