The experimental investigation of the thermal and electrical conductivities of semiconductors and the way in which these properties depend upon temperature is of importance in attempting to contribute to greater understanding of transport processes in such solids. This dissertation is an account of the determination of the thermal conductivity, electrical conductivity, and the Halh coefficient of the semiconductors indiumantimonide, gallium arsenide and indium phosphide. The results are used to discuss the predominant transport processes occurring in each material. The experimental method is based on the relation between the potential and the temperature in a conductor through which a current flows.
