Abstract : In view of the fact that most Hall-constant measurements are made with rectangular-section samples, whereas semiconductor properties are usually investigated with round samples, the author determines theoretically the field potential necessary to measure the Hall emf in round samples. The differential equation for the potential is derived and is solved under the assumption that the magnetic field is weak. The solution shows that the expression for the Hall emf is the same as in the case of rectangular samples, so that if a round sample is used and the current and Hall electrodes are secured to the ends of mutually perpendicular diameters, the results will be the same as for a rectangular section.
