Galvanomagnetic and Thermomagnetic Effects: the Hall and Allied Phenomena

    Naturevolume 113page743 (1924) | Download Citation



    THE phenomenon of the Hall effect and the allied galvanomagnetic and thermomagnetic effects have for many years been studied closely by physicists, who have hitherto failed to give any satisfactory explanation of the fact that the several effects have different signs in different metals. It seems probable that no satisfactory explanation of these phenomena can be given until the internal structure of the atom and the interaction of atom and electron are better understood. It would be necessary also to have a common electron theory for heat, electricity, and magnetism. To the serious research student this book will prove of great value.
