In this paper the influence of the volume discharge of nanosecond duration formed in a non-uniform electric field at atmospheric pressure on samples of epitaxial films HgCdTe (MCT) of p-type conductivity. It is suggested that after exposure on film surface oxide layer was formed. This layer has a built positive charge that leads to the formation of an inversion layer which "shunts" the rest of the sample so that the measured field dependence of Hall coefficient corresponds to the material of n-type of conductivity.
