Schottky Diode

Schottky diode, also referred to as  Schottky barrier diode (abbreviated SBD) is named after their inventor, Dr. Schottky SBD is not fabricated on the principle of forming a PN junction by contacting a P-type semiconductor with an N-type semiconductor, but by a metal-semiconductor junction based on metal-to-semiconductor contact principle.  SBD is also called a metal-semiconductor diode or a surface barrier diode, which is a hot carrier diode.
