Abstract : The electrical behavior (conductivity, thermoelectric power, etc.) of germanium semiconductors can be described quantitatively once the number of carriers is known. The number of electrons (N-type conduction) or the number of holes (P-type conduction), depending on the type and number of impurities present, can be determined from Hall effect measurements. It is assumed (and made plausible by experiment) that each impurity atom releases one carrier.
