Experiment 5 - The Reverse Voltage of a Diode

For this you adapt the diode circuit by replacing the light bulb with an 1 kΩ resistor. Measure now the reverse voltage across the diode.

Circuit measuring the reverse voltage of a diode. (Enlarge)

Circuit diagram measuring the reverse voltage of a diode.

You actually measure a reverse voltage of 9 volt at the diode and you would measure 0 volt at the resistor.

But does this mean, there is no current flowing in the reverse direction...?
