Reverse biased pn junction

    Sorry im new and I had problems creating the thread. But I will post my question here:-D. So in reverse biased pn junction the width of the depletion layer increases. But on the N side a large positive charge from the donnor ions is building. Why it doesnt attract electrons from the acceptor ions? Why electrons doesnt flow from the P type through the N type and in to the positive terminal of Vcc?

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?
