# The Quantized Hall Effect

@article{Stormer1983TheQH, title={The Quantized Hall Effect}, author={Horst L. Stormer and Daniel C. Tsui}, journal={Science}, year={1983}, volume={220}, pages={1241 - 1246} }

Quantization of the Hall effect is one of the most surprising discoveries in recent experimental solid-state research. At low temperatures and high magnetic fields the ratio of the Hall voltage to the electric current in a two-dimensional system is quantized in units of h/e2, where h is Planck's constant and e is the electronic charge. Concomitantly, the electrical resistance of the specimen drops to values far below the resistances of the best normal metals.
