Depends on whether you believe in current electron theory or voltage theory...a 
diode is merely a transistor without a third input node.  There is always an 
overlap and, depending on the molecular construction and the chemical elements 
used , and the polarity and pressure of the voltage and the direction of the 
current; gives different biases and trigger points.  Many years ago a scientist 
from IBM put  the three letters IBM onto a molecule...won a Nobel Prize for it. 
Some people don’t  believe it  happened...after all electron microscopes at the 
nano level are mere figments of the quantum theorist’s imagination.


That’s the trouble with belief...having faith is not quite the same as knowing 
the truth sometimes, in fact it acts as a blind, double or multiple...like 
spies...and there are many truths...Here is a really big question...The Big 
Bang Theory...or the Damp Squib theory...What happens when an irresistible 
force meets an immovable object? Answer that one and you will get a Nobel 
Prize...plus lots of spondoolix.

for the Young”....

Electronically a diode only allows current to only flow one way.....is that 
good enough for a bonus point?

bonus points for background on where this technical structure
originated and why :)
