Abstract:

Electrodeless methods, based on the inductive coupling of samples to coils, for determining the electrical conductivity, the Hall mobility, and the magneto-resistance of a semiconductor are described. The theory is developed for cylin drical and spherical geometry samples and design considerations and experimental techniques are discussed. These methods eliminate problems en countered with standard four-probe methods, such as obtaining non-rectifying and non-injecting contacts, and applying electrodes to liquid or chemically active samples.
