A novel characterization method using magnetoconductivity tensor components to determine the carrier concentration and mobility of majority and minority carriers is presented. Results are given for bulk n-HgCdTe (one carrier), liquid phase epitaxial n-HgCdTe (two carriers), and p-InSb (two or three carriers). Advantages of this method over the standard Hall coefficient analysis are discussed.
