Abstract : Thin films of InSb were prepared by the vacuum evaporation of the compound onto glass substrates. Irreversible changes which took place in the electrical conductivity and Hall coefficient during film annealings, and differences between the diffraction patterns of annealed and unannealed films were examined in detail. Surface replicas of both annealed and unannealed films were photomicrographed. Galvanomagnetic properties of annealed films -- notably the temperature dependence of the conductivity, the Hall coefficient, and the mobility -- were compared with the same properties in bulk material.
