The numerical calculation of the potential distribution in a pn diode is presented using a spreadsheet. It can be included in an introductory course in semiconductor device physics as a demonstration of the numerical analysis of devices. It is also a demonstration of the numerical solution of Poisson's equation when the charge density is a function of the potential, and is appropriate for a section on numerical methods in an introductory course in electromagnetics
