Scaling functions of the support and of the measure have been used to characterize the scaling behavior of a dynamical system. While scaling functions for the scaling of the measure, ƒ(α), have been calculated for a number of experimental systems, examples of scaling functions φ(λ) for the scaling of the support are difficult to obtain. In this contribution, we report on a phase-transition-like effect of an experimental p-doped germanium semiconductor sample. It is found that the results obtained from the dynamical scaling function agree with those obtained by Horita et al. from model maps, indicating that scaling functions for the scaling of the support are a powerful method of characterizing experimental dynamical systems.
