Abstract

Measurements of electrical resistivity and the temperature coefficient of resistance of vacuum deposited chromium—copper alloy films are reported. The mean freepath of the conduction electrons calculated from resistivity data and TCR data is 37.6 and 36.3 nm, respectively. The resistivity and TCR of an infinitely thick film have been computed to be 3.83 μΩcm and 2.886 × 10−3° C−1, respectively. The experimental data can be satisfactorily explained on the basis of Fuchs-Sondheimer theory assuming a total diffuse scattering.
