Electron Transport in Bismuth in Non-Quantising Magnetic Fields: Pseudo-Parabolic Model
The pseudo-parabolic model introduced recently by Heremans and Hansen is analysed further by calculating within this model the effect of strong, non-quantising magnetic fields on electron transport properties. Comparison with experimental data in the range from 20 K to room temperature shows that a variety of complicated field dependences of the thermoelectric power in the intermediate field range, previously unexplained, follow the present analysis. Disagreements in strong fields set in at field values which coincide quite well with the quantum limits.
