A.27. State law of junction.28. Define Reverse saturation current.]29. What is the principle of operation of LCD?30. Discuss the relative advantages and disadvantages ofLEDs and LCDs.31. What are optoelectronic deviceOptoelectronic device are light operated (photoelectronic)devices, light emitting device or devices that modify light32. Write down the classification of optoelectronic devicea) Photoemissive b) Photoconductive or photovoltaic33. Define luminescenceLight can be emitted by a solid when it is stimulated by thesource of incident energy. This phenomenon is calledluminescence34. What are the types of luminescence?a) Photoluminescence b) Electroluminescence35 . Define photoluminescenceIt is incident energy is in the form of photons, then it is calledphotoluminescence36. Define electroluminensenceIf the radiation is produced by the application of an electricfield, it is termed as electroluminescence37. Which colour of light is emitted by GaAs, Gp, GaAspGaAs - Infra red radiation (invisible) GaP - Red or GreenGaAsP - Red or Yellow38. Define injection laser diodeWhen the emitted light is coherent, (ie) essentiallymonochromatic, then such a diode is refered to as an injection
laser diode39. What are the liminations of LCD?* It requises an external or internal light source * Temperaturerange is limited to about 60oC * Lime time is limited due to chemicaldegeneration40. What are the two types of LCDs?a) Dynamic scattering type LCD b) Field effect LCD41. Name the crystal materls used to LCD?a) Nematic b) Cholesteric42. What are the types of liquid crystal cells?a) Transmittive type b) Reflective type43. What re the advantages of LCD?* They require less voltage * They are economical* They have a low power consumption44. What are the disadvantages of LCD?* They are slow devices (ie) turn On & turn OFF timeare quite large* They occupy large area * Their life span is quite small45. What is the main difference between laser & LED?Laser emits monochromatic or coherent light whereas LEDemits incoherent light46. What are the disadvantages of using laser diode?Because of high-energy density, a laser beam is quitedangerous eye protection must be worn when working withthese devices47. Define injection laser diodeLaser diode which operates in a pulsed manner are termedinjection laser diodes48. Define continuous wave laser diodeLaser diode which produce a continuous output are refered ascontinuous wave laser diode49. Define dark currentIn photodiode when no light is applied, there is a minimumreverse leakage current called as dark current50. Give some applications of photo diodesThey are used as demodulators, encoders, opticalcommunication system, high speed counting and switchingcircuits, computer card punching etc.51. What is photovoltaic effect?If a PN junction is open circuited the energy is used to create apotential difference which is proportionl to the incident light. Thisphenomenon is clled pen[hotovoltaic effectUNIT – II
