Where could I find out how a Hall probe works? I have got a book in mind called Introduction to electronics by Theodore Korneff but am not sure how useful it will be. I have searched the web but cannot find a description of its working.

Googling the term Hall probe turned up 1.2 million pages: the first one being hyper-physics. Hyper physics has a very good description of how a Hall effect probe works. What exactly are you looking for?

Yeah, hyperphysics seems to mention the Hall effect more than the probe or is that all that can be mentioned? I guess, I am looking for something which perhaps explains how the design/construction/structure of the Hall probe enables the measurement of the Hall effect. Yeah that' s actually a good way to put it.

Working of a Hall Probe
gets into the applications of a hall sensor....

are you looking for actual semiconductor manufacturing information. If so, check these out for academic papers. You wil probably have to tweak your search a bit, but chances are you will find it.
