The sheet free‐carrier concentration in a thin, conducting layer on an insulating substrate is lower than the net, sheet‐dopant concentration because of free‐carrier depletion in the surface and interface regions. Here we develop an algorithm to give the true, net sheet‐donor concentration from the measured sheet‐Hall concentration under the assumption of a Gaussian donor profile, which is usually sufficiently accurate for ion‐implanted samples. Correction curves are generated for Si29 ions implanted into GaAs at energies of 60, 100, 130, 150, and 200 keV, and at doses of 1×1011–2×1014 ions/cm2. Also, the Hall mobilities and r factors are calculated at various carrier concentrations for NA/ND = 0 and NA/ND = 0.5.
