Abstract

An equation for the Hall electromotive force of anisotropic single crystals is derived on the basis of the solution to the associated boundary problem of electrodynamics. The equation coincides with that used in measuring the Hall electromotive force of isotropic materials by van der Pauw's method. The results are tested experimentally on anisotropicZnAs 2 specimens.
