Room temperature Hall coefficient and resistivity
for selected chemical elements

Daniel W. Koon, September 2000

Resistivity, r in units of mW.cm. The Hall coefficient, RH, is in units of 10-4cm3/C = 10-10m3/C = 10-12 V.cm/A/Oe = 10-12ohm.cm/G

The motivation for compiling this table is the existence of conflicting values in the " popular" literature in which tables of Hall coefficients are given. Please use the following table with caution: the author assumes no liability for others´ and his own errors in its compilation.
