Definitions for "HALL EFFECT"
In a current-carrying semiconductor bar located in a magnetic field that is perpendicular to the direction of the current, the production of a voltage perpendicular to both the current and the magnetic field. This physical effect is used in position sensors.
A condition in a semiconductor where current flowing perpendicular to a magnetic field produces a (small-voltage) potential difference perpendicular to both the magnetic field and the current flow.
The occurence of a voltage developed across a conductor placed in a magnetic field.
