...and are immediately available for conduction when reverse bias is applied. When the diode is switched from forward to reverse bias the diode conducts in the reverse direction for a short time interval then the current is abruptly cut off when all the stored charges have been dispelled. The diode therefore remains in a low-impedance state until the cut-off occurs. The reverse voltage then builds up rapidly at a rate determined by the reverse junction capacitance and the external circuit. The cut-off occurs in the range of picoseconds and results in a...
