The purpose of this thesis has been to study some of the properties of the hole-electron plasma in the i-layer of a wide p-i-n diode, particularly phenomena associated with the build-up of plasma in a diode, initially at equilibrium, excited with various voltage signals. The investigations of changes in plasma density with time have made use of the fact that this quantity is almost linearly related to the conductance of the diode. Thus the study was carried out by observing the transmitted current resulting from the application of various signals.
