Electrical Engineering XYZ MCQs

The Schottky diode is a:

  1. Minority carrier device
  2. Majority carrier device
  3. Both of the above
  4. Fast recovery diode

Correct answer: 2. Majority carrier device

Explanation: A Schottky diode is a special type of diode that forms a junction between a metal and a semiconductor material (typically a metal and n-type semiconductor). Unlike conventional p-n junction diodes, which rely on the movement of both majority and minority carriers for their operation, Schottky diodes primarily utilize majority carriers for conduction.
