For a given structure and applied voltage, the electric field is calculated using Eqs. (1) and (2). With the known values for the electric field, the avalanche coefficients and generation current are calculated for each point within the diode. The total current is then calculated using Eqs. (8) and (9). A complete treatment of I–V characteristics would require an examination of all important sources of leakage current, a topic well beyond the scope of this article. Instead, the pho- tocurrent I–V characteristics will be emphasized.
