Hall Voltage for n-type and p-type resistor

magneticex01.in : Hall Voltage for n-type and p-type resistor

Requires: S-Pisces/Magnetic
Minimum Versions: Atlas 5.22.1.R

The example shows :

  • How to specify the Magnetic field and Hall scattering factors.
  • The Hall voltage set up across a resistor.
  • How the Hall effect shows the type of carrier dominating conduction.

To apply a magnetic field to Atlas, simply assign a value to the parameter bz on the models statement. The magnetic field must be perpendicular to the current flow, and so attempts to assign a non-zero value to either bx or by will result in an error message.

The voltages at the centre left and right of the device are given relative to the reference voltage in the centre of the device. Their difference is the Hall Voltage, which is zero if no magnetic field is applied.
