Measurements of near-equilibrium transport are commonly used to characterize electronic materials. This lecture is a brief introduction to commonly-used techniques such as van der Pauw and Hall effect measurements.


  1. Introduction
  2. Resistivity / conductivity measurements
  3. Hall effect measurements
  4. The van der Pauw method
  5. Temperature-dependent measurements
  6. Discussion
  7. Summary
