Quantized Hall Effect
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 177)


In semiconductor inversion layers with an applied strong magnetic field, the resistance can vanish and the Hall resistance take discrete values h/ie2 (i = 1,2,...). We consider the possibility that this might be an occurrence of a macroscopic quantum state.
