Abstract

The Hall mobility of carriers in isotopically pure Ge crystals, doped by neutron transmutation, has been measured over a wide temperature range. Our experimental data allow quantitative comparison with theory. We find that at temperatures below 20 K the mobility is limited by neutral impurity scattering and it can be quantitatively described by the theory of McGill and Baron.
