Understanding & Minimizing Errors That Can Interfere with Hall Effect Measurements


Hall effect measurements are a fundamental tool for semiconductor material characterization. However, the challenge with some Hall voltage measurements is that they can be at low voltage levels, and at these levels, error terms can significantly impact the quality of the measurement. This technical note will address the most common of these errors and recommend methods to either eliminate or minimize such errors to achieve quality Hall effect measurements.
