What is a diode used for in physics?

Diodes are electronic components with a variety of applications, depending on their concrete design and principle. A free-wheeling diode, for example, is used to allow current to flow only in one direction within an electrical circuit. There are other types of diodes like laser diodes, light emitting diodes (LEDs), photo diodes, tunnel diodes and many others.

What is the difference between series and parallel diodes?

Connecting diodes in series:Connecting diodes in series will increase the forward voltage of the resultant diode.Connecting diodes in series will cause an open circuit until peak inverse voltage (smallest diode) is applied on total resultant.Connecting diodes in parallel:Connecting diodes in parallel will increase the current carrying capacity of the diode.Connecting diodes in parallel will not get you a resultant diode conduction in both sides.
