Now, there IS a net charge....
the P-type side of the PN Junction
has picked up some free electrons..
and now has a net Negative charge
The movement of electrons from the
N-type side will leave behind a
Depletion Region that behaves as
if it were intrinsic (undoped)
(Actually, most of the depletion region
will be on the lighter doped side)
