Abstract

Simultaneous Hall and conductivity measurements have been performed on sputtered polycrystalline thin films and on bulk ceramic specimens of nearly stoichiometric CeO2 in the temperature range between 900° and 1040°C. The measurements have been performed in air using low-frequency alternating current. In the case of the bulk ceramic specimens, an upper limit for the carrier mobility of ≤0.2 cm2/(V·s) has been obtained, which is in accordance with data from the literature for bulk samples. The conductivity of the thin films (1/(Ω·m) at 1000°C) is in accordance with data from the literature for bulk ceramics. The carrier density derived from the Hall measurements (3 × 1016/cm3 at 1000°C) increases with increasing temperature, whereas the Hall mobility (4 cm2/(V·s) at 1000°C) decreases with increasing temperature. These values differ from literature data for bulk ceramic specimens. The difference may be due to the small grain diameters (approx.200 nm) in the 1-μm-thick thin films.
