Bulk Semiconductor Levitation by use of Electrical Current and the Earth’s Magnetic Field

Authors: Thomas Alexander Meyer

In this paper I present a method for the levitation of a bulk semiconductor by use of the Earth’s magnetic field acting on an electrical current through the semiconductor. The theory is simplified to the case of a large semiconducting sample with a strong electrical current and specific examples are discussed for different elemental semiconductors.
