Is E-field in pn-junctions changing linearly with bias?

  1. Apr 15, 2015 #1
    Hi guys, there are a lot of textbooks and articles describe the electric field in depletion region at thermal equilibium, but very few of them tell what happens to the field under bias. I am wondering if the electric field in the depletion region simply changes linearly with reverse bias? Or if there is another relationship? It will be great if you could give some references so that I can convince my colleague. Thanks :)
