The concentration dependences of the Hall coefficient, electrical conductivity and charge carrier mobility in CexSn1–xSe (х ≤ 0,02) are investigated in the temperature range 77–400 K. In the samples studied, impurities are compensated by their own defects and with increasing cerium concentration (Ce) (x = 0, 01; 0.015) the concentration of donor impurities increases and a change in the type of conductivity is observed.
Key words: Hall coefficient, conductivity, mobility, activation energy, scattering mechanism.
