Bismuth selenide crystals were grown from melts with liquid concentrations within 0·2 per cent of stoichiometry. The resulting crystals were examined structurally showing that single crystal samples could be cut for electronic property measurements. Samples were n-type and degenerate (n ∼ 2 × 1025 m-3). Hall, magnetoresistance and Shubnikov-de Haas measurements confirm that the carriers lie in a single minimum located at the centre of the Brillouin Zone. The results are discussed in terms of a non-ellipsoidal band model, and the degeneracy discussed in terms of a defect model.
