  • The n-type polycrystalline pyrite films were obtained by annealing mackinawite electrodeposited on metallic titanium substrates in sulphur atmosphere in the temperature range 523-773 K. The detailed structural and morphological characterisation of the films shows that an increase of crystallite size and a porosity decrease was achieved by increasing the sulphuration temperature. The measurement of thermoelectric effect indicates that pyrite films present n-type conduction, which is attributed to the diffusion of Ti atoms from the substrate. The Seebeck coefficient varies from -54 to -24 {mu}V/K, depending on pyrite grain size.
  • Hall-effect data between 4 and 300 K on p-italic-type strained quantum well structures in the InGaAs alloy system show pronounced effects due to the strain-induced splitting of the heavy- and light-hole valence bands. As a function of biaxial compression in the range 0.5--1.4%, the 77 K mobilities increase monotonically by a factor of --5, as does a high-temperature activation energy which is found to be nearly equal to the predicted strain splitting.
  • In this study, we report magneto-resistance measurements on an n-doped InSb film, to separate the contributions of the electrical currents from the heat currents. We have demonstrated a prototype for a magnetic field sensor which is powered by heat currents and does not require any electrical current. We fabricated two Hall bars, where a low frequency (f = 0.05 Hz) AC current, was applied between the two contacts in one of the Hall bars. Separating the f and 2f components of the voltage measured across the second Hall bar was used to distinguish between the electrical and the heat contributions to the electronmore » currents. Our observations can be modeled using a Gaussian distribution of mobility within the sample.« less
  • The validity rnnge of elementary formulas for calcu- lation of current carrier concentration and mobility in germanium from Hall effect and conductivity measurements is established in this paper. A curve is plotted for the quantitative estimation of errors due to the application of these formulas in different cases. (tr-auth)
