Resistivity-temperature measurements have been carried out on pure manganese metal in which the β phase had been retained by quenching, and on two alloys in which the β phase was found to be stabilized at room temperature. The resistivity of β-manganese is seen to decrease monotonically with temperature and no anomaly is revealed in the temperature range 4.2–7 K. A low-temperature resistance minimum, however, appears in the nickel-stabilized alloys.
