Discusses the current dependence of the forward voltage of a cryogenic silicon diode temperature sensor in a certain temperature range. Increased sensitivity of the diode for lower current values in the high temperature range; Suppression of the rapid increase of the forward voltage at low temperatures by reducing the current; Operation of such commercial diodes for practical purposes.
