Diodes are used in numerous ways.
Some of them are:
changing AC current to DC current, by removing part of the signal. In this capacity, they are known as rectifiers.
They function as electrical switches, and are useful in surge protectors because they can prevent voltage spikes.
They are used in performing digital logic.
They are also used to create power supplies and voltage doublers.
