An attempt to measure Faraday rotation in water at microwave frequencies due to Hall effect, not feasible due to the extremely small angle of rotation expected 0.00010 deg of arc, served to turn attention to ice and the possibility of a direct measurement of Hall effect. The theory for the conductivity and the dielectric properties of ice, and of ice containing HF impurities, is described. An experimental technique to detect Hall effect in ice containing controlled amounts of impurities is proposed and discussed in detail. Author
