Can anyone tell me.

In which electronics projects we use Si and Ge diodes and for what purpose do we use it ?
I want the list of 18 projects in which we use Si and Ge diodes with their purposes in each project.

Where can i get this information ?

Indeed. Maybe the OP should take a look at what types of semiconductor diode are out there to get an idea for their applications.
