I'm trying to understand the working of an n-channel depletion type MOSFET. I'm confused why no tutorial talks about the depletion region between the P and N type silicon i.e between the 'bulk' and the 'channel'.
Even if I were to consider that the depletion region is actually present but neglected in the explanation, here comes the next question, 'How can the MOSFET ever work in the 'Enhancement Mode'?'
Because I presently understand that this MOSFET will be in the Depletion mode when I forward bias the P-N junction (the depletion region gets destroyed and holes shift towards the gate to decrease the carrier density) But for enhancement mode, when I reverse bias the P-N junction, the depletion region should further increase (become wider) and once again the channel should become SMALLER thus REDUCING the drain current, whereas the drain current actually INCREASES in the Enhancement mode (Transfer characteristics diagram attached). What am I missing?
