General diode applications

In conjunction with the Passive crystal receivers, the Tunnel diodes, the Varactor diodes and the Schottkey diodes in the diodes section, here I present you more circuits and applications using diodes, to show you that you can do things with diodes that you couldn't ever imagine they can do. This section does not distinguish between different diode types, it refers to diodes categorized by the applications, even if they are tunnel, varactor, schottkey etc, so all the topics in the diodes section should be studied so learn the magic behind these little devices.
