Overview

In the reverse-bias mode a very small current flows and is called reverse saturation current. This current is independent of the applied reverse voltage until the junction breaks down at a voltage known as reverse breakdown voltage or peak inverse voltage. There will be a sudden rise in the current which damages the diode.
