Do diodes work with AC?

As you can see, during the positive half-cycle of the applied ac, the voltage across the diode is the full applied ac voltage, while the circuit current is zero. Note that this behavior is not dependent on frequency; an ideal diode simply conducts current in one direction only, regardless of frequency.

Consequently, is a diode the same as a battery?

A diode and a battery are two totally different things. A battery is a source of power. It has a positive terminal and a negative terminal. A diode is a specialized electronic component with two electrodes called the anode and the cathode.
