Abstract:

A study was made of the effect of a magnetic field on the conductivity, i.e., the magnetoresistance effect. The detailed behavior of conduction electrons in a solid in the presence of external fields is determined primarily by two factors, the band structure of the material, and the scattering processes which the electrons experience. Comparison of experimental results with the theoretical predictions for various assumed band structures and scattering mechanisms could provide important evidence for the correct band structure and scattering to be associated with the particular material of interest. To obtain the full information available from electronic conduction measurements it was necessary to apply both electric and magnetic fields. Author
