Anisotropic properties of the Bridgman grown layered semiconductor p-InTe were studied by analyzing the temperature dependence of electrical conductivity and Hall mobility parallel and perpendicular to the layer planes. The mobilities were μamalgamation or coproduct = 50–60 cm2V−1 sec−1 and μperpendicular = 10–15 cm2V−1sec−1 and varied as μ ≈ Tn where n = 1.43 due to impurity scattering. Pressure-induced semiconductor-metal transition occurred at about 50 kbar. The pressure coefficient of resistance was 3 times larger in the direction perpendicular to the layer plane due to the difference between inter and intra-planar bonding.
