How is doping related with depletion layer of diode?

“How is doping related with depletion layer of diode and how it increases the conductivity of semiconductor” – Nilotpal Arjun Asks Answer: As doping is increased, the width of depletion layer decreases as there will be enough electrons and holes available in a narrow region. The conductivity increases
