Abstract:

The transverse magnetoresistance and Hall effect between 16 and 70 K were measured in p-type germanium in fields up to 165 kgauss. The zero-field resistance at 77 K was approximately 2.4 ohm-cm. Samples oriented with H in the 111 direction, I random H in the 001 direction, I in the 110 direction H in the 110 direction, I in the 001 direction and H in the 110 direction, and I in the 110 direction were investigated. The magnetoresistance was found to be approximately linear in H with little dependence on orientation. The Hall coefficient was independent of H above 30 K but increased with H at lower temperatures due to magnetic freeze-out of carriers. Author
