    what is happening inside the pn junction diode. how the depletion region decreases when it is forward biased?

    ruby,

    The forward voltage supplies electrons to the n-semiconductor and removes electrons from the p-semiconductore thereby decreasing the depletion region and lowering the junction barrier voltage.
