The Hall Effect in Hopping Conduction
The Hall mobility associated with hopping motion differs qualitatively from that attributed to the notion of itinerant carriers. Particularly striking is the occurrence of Hall-effect sign anomalies: electrons and holes which circulate in a magnetic field in the sense of positive and negative charges, respectively. A concise overview of the theory of the small-polaron Hall effect is presented with emphasis being placed on the physical original of the small polaron’s distinctive properties.
