Electrical anisotropic property of some unidirectionally solidified eutectic alloys

The eutectic systems of Cd-Pb, Bi-Cd and Bi-Zn were alloyed using chemically pure raw materials in an electric furnace. The electrical resistivities were determined at room temperature in terms of the microstructures of the eutectic alloys. Electrical resistivities measured parallel and perpendicular to the unidirectional microstructure at different solidification rates were quite distinctive. The electrical resistivities measured were consistent with calculated values. The present study indicates qualitatively that unidirectional solidification of ideal conductor-insulator eutectic systems could produce electrical anisotropic materials.
