A theoretical model for the calculation of the anisotropy in the electron Hall mobility is reported for n-type bulk single crystals of 4H- and 6H-SiC for the three distinct Hall measurement configurations: (a) [B∥c, j⊥c], (b) [B⊥c, j⊥c], and (c) [B⊥c, j∥c], where B, j, and c are the directions of the magnetic field, current flow, and c axis of the hexagonal unit cell, respectively. Comparison with experimental results shows that the anisotropy of the electron transport in both 4H- and 6H-SiC can be explained solely by the anisotropy in the effective electron mass tensors.
