What the difference between pin and pn diodes i-v curve?

  • #1
For my understanding there should be no big difference in i-v curve between regular p-n junction and p-i-n junction, the only difference i can think about is do to the bigger resistance of the intrinsic layer. The curve should look the same only the current will rise little bit slower, because of the resistance. Am i right?

Differences between pin diodes and p-n junction diodes exist in the characteristics of the forward bias resistance and the junction capacitance under reverse bias.

But how we ca characterize the forward bias resistance of p-i-n diode?
