Hall effect caused by the spin-polarized current in superconducters (SC) was analyzed. The spin-orbit scattering deflected the spin-polarized quasiparticles flowing in the SC to yield a quasiparticle spin imbalance in the transverse direction. The strong coupling between the quasiparticle charge imbalance and the Cooper pair charge resulted in the Hall effect. The results showed that the Hall voltages due to skew scattering and side jump mechanisms had different temperature dependence in the semiconducting state.
