Paper Abstract

In this contribution we report on Nernst-Ettingshausen effect, electrical conductivity, thermoelectric power, and Hall effect in the temperature range from 77 to 400 K for solid solution (Pb0.78Sn0.22)Te with In dopant impurity. Nernst-Ettingshausen coefficient Q exhibits properties unusual for IV-VI materials. It has positive sign and decreases rapidly with an increasing temperature. A theoretical model, taking into account hopping conductivity along strongly localized electronic states of In impurity is suggested. The model gives a good agreement with experimental data.
