Solid State Physics: Hall Effect + Semiconductor Lab

  1. Oct 7, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    The lab is attached. I've also attached the pre-lab just for the diagram.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Can anyone think of some good errors for this lab?

    We ended up with ~80% error.

    I've thought of two:
    1. Adjusting the potentiometer so that the width of the conductor would start with 0 voltage was very difficult.
    2. The magnetic field was strongest in the center but was weak on the sides of the wafer. This caused some uncertainty.
