Abstract

THE conductivity of vacuum-fused polycrystalline specimens of boron is observed to increase in a magnetic field instead of decreasing as expected theoretically. Different samples exhibit the effect to different extents, but all show saturation at a field-strength of about 3,000 gauss. Increases of up to 1 part in 103 at saturation have been observed.
