  Rectifier - Wikitronics
Rectifiers are used as components of power supplies and as detectors of radio signals.
Rectifiers may be made of solid state diodes, vacuum tube diodes, mercury arc valves, and other technologies.
When just one diode is used to rectify AC (by blocking the negative or positive portion of the waveform) the difference between the term diode and the term rectifier is merely one of usage, i.e., the term rectifier describes a diode that is being used to convert AC to DC.

 Rectifier circuits : DIODES AND RECTIFIERS
The full-wave center-tapped rectifier polarity at the load may be reversed by changing the direction of the diodes.
When polyphase AC is rectified, the phase-shifted pulses overlap each other to produce a DC output that is much “smoother” (has less AC content) than that produced by the rectification of single-phase AC.
A full-wave rectifier is a circuit that converts both half-cycles of the AC voltage waveform to an unbroken series of voltage pulses of the same polarity.

 Basic Rectifier Circuits
As we have noted when looking at the Elements of a Power Supply, the purpose of the rectifier section is to convert the incoming ac from a transformer or other ac power source to some form of pulsating dc.
Rectifier circuits may also be further clasified according to their configuration, as we will see below.
At the same time, however, a full-wave rectifier providing only a single output polarity does require a secondary winding that is twice as big as the half-wave rectifier's secondary, because only half of the secondary winding is providing power on any one half-cycle of the incoming ac.

 Metal Finishing |Rectifiers, Rectifier controls | Ask the Experts
I assume that you are trying to have the large rectifier ‘follow’ the pulse pattern generated by the pulse rectifier.
A standard rectifier will always need a certain time to get to a certain output level, so if your pulse generator outputs relatively short pulse times, the output of the rectifier will not be able to exactly follow the reference signal, resulting in a distorted output waveform.
A) The output Ripple of a rectifier is a fluctuation of the output DC Voltage of that rectifier.

Normally these are used in the power supply of all types of equipment to provide the DC power source required by most electronic components for operation.
In a sense, what a rectifier does is act as a one way gate where sinusoidal (see sine wave) current (AC) is changed to something closer to constant current (DC).
Two types of rectifiers are half-wave and full-wave rectifiers, and are so named because of what they do with the negative portion of the wave.

  Rectifier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
When just one diode is used to rectify AC (by blocking the negative or positive portion of the waveform) the difference between the term diode and the term rectifier is merely one of usage, e.g.
However, in a circuit with a non-center tapped transformer, four rectifiers are required instead of the one needed for half-wave rectification.
A full wave rectifier converts the whole of the input waveform to one of constant polarity (positive or negative) at its output by reversing the negative (or positive) portions of the alternating current waveform.

 Silicon-controlled rectifier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A silicon-controlled rectifier (or semiconductor-controlled rectifier) is a 4-layer solid state device that controls current flow.
The name "silicon controlled rectifier" is a trade name for the type of thyristor commercialized at General Electric in 1957.
A p-type layer acts as anode and an n-type layer as a cathode; the p-type layer closer to the n-type(cathode) acts as a gate.

 Current-Doubler Rectifier Reduces Ripple Current   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The current-doubler rectifier is a popular alternative for the output stage of a buck-derived power converter, which would otherwise use a conventional center-tapped transformer with secondary-side, full-wave rectification.
Also, a finer resolution in the transformer turns ratio is possible since the two secondaries of the full-wave rectifier are replaced with a single secondary winding in a current-doubler application.
Using a current-doubler rectifier minimizes the required output capacitance by reducing the amount of output ripple current seen by the output capacitor.
