High-field galvano- and thermomagnetic effects in cadmium

Abstract

Detailed results are presented of investigations on the galvano- and thermomagnetic coefficients of pure Cd (ρ 11 , ρ 21 , γ 11 , and γ 21 ). The transverse resistivity ρ 11 is almost perfectly quadratic in magnetic field (B 1.99 ) at the lowest temperatures, thus throwing doubt on the applicability of intersheet scattering models, which suggest significant departures fromB 2 . The lattice conductivity λ g is extracted from the high-field thermal data and is found to exhibit no pronounced anomalies, in contrast to the previously obtained data on the zero-field electronic thermal conductivity (to which λ g should be related in the simplest theory). The Hall resistivity ρ 21 is qualitatively similar to that obtained by previous workers, but the detailed field dependence is different. After corrections are made for the effects of λ g , the Righi-Leduc thermal resistivity γ 21 is found to behave like ρ 21 , though it is more sensitive to temperature, as might be expected for a thermal coefficient.
