Question for Schottky diode

  1. May 13, 2014 #1
    I studied semiconductor basic long time ago... So i've reviewed these days.
    For a while, i got a question about Schottky diode's frequency response.
    That is Schottky diode has more awesome frequency response than pn diode.
    Why does Schottky diode has good frequency response?
    Somebody help me... I need your help.....

    Welcome to the PF.

    What has your reading told you so far about the differences between standard and Schottky diodes? What kind of property would affect the frequency response of a diode?
