The effects of magnetic fields upon the current distribution across a p‐n junction are discussed. The magnetic field, acting through the Hall fields in both n‐ and p‐type material, contributes to the junction bias, thereby altering the current flow. The effects of series resistance are considered. The theory gives results in good agreement with measurements made upon a GaAs laser diode.
