Abstract

"Pure samples of BiFeO₃ were heat treated in oxygen and nitrogen atmospheres in an attempt to reduce the conductivity of the samples. Dielectric constant and dissipation factor measurements, as a function of frequency, were made to determine whether the samples had been altered. A special high temperature Hall effect apparatus was constructed. Using this apparatus an upper limit for the Hall mobility in BiFeO₃ was established. The apparatus was also used for room temperature measurements of Ga-doped CdS samples. Resistivity measurements to be used with the Hall effect results were made on both the BiFeO₃ and the CdS samples. Hot-Point Probe (thermoelectric) measurements on BiFeO₃ indicated p-type conduction, and the Hall effect results established n-type conduction for the CdS samples"--Abstract, page i.
