the Hall Effect

Last week we used Helmholtz coils to demonstrate the Hall Effect in a piece of n-type germanium.  I’ve found a video on the sixtysymbols site, where Prof. Bowley from Nottingham University explains what’s going on.  Enjoy!

Download the attached pdf document if you’d like to learn more about applications and measurement of the Hall Effect.
