Can a diode be made by connecting, in series, separate n and p-type semiconductors?
Assume that all ends are attached to Ohmic contacts. I am hoping that this will prevent any discontinuities in the potential.
I have seen a similar question on the Physics Stack Exchange, but the question is too old to make comments (https://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/72432/would-connecting-p-type-and-n-type-semiconductors-work-as-a-diode). But in that question, they didn't talk about Ohmic contacts.
