Hall Effect Presentation

Introduction to Hall Effect
• The Hall effect refers to the generation of a voltage perpendicular to the flow of electric current in a conductor or semiconductor material.
• It was discovered by Edwin Hall in 1879 and has since found numerous applications in various fields of science and technology.
• The Hall effect is caused by the interaction between moving charges and an external magnetic field.

Principle and Mechanism
• When an electric current flows through a conductor or semiconductor in the presence of a magnetic field, a force is exerted on the moving charges.
• This force causes the charges to accumulate on one side of the conductor, creating an electric field that opposes further charge accumulation.
• The resulting voltage perpendicular to both the current and magnetic field directions is known as the Hall voltage.

• The Hall effect is widely used in sensing applications, such as in Hall effect sensors for position, speed, and current measurements.
• It is also utilized in magnetic field measurements and magnetometers, which find applications in navigation systems, magnetic imaging, and non-destructive testing.
• Hall effect devices are employed in electronic devices like computer hard drives, where they are used to control the precise positioning of read-write heads. Note: The above presentation is a concise overview of the Hall effect and is intended for brevity.
