The superconductivity of gold alloys

  • 1877 Accesses

  • 5 Citations

Abstract

While no intermetallic compound of gold has yet been found to exhibit superconductivity at temperatures that would make it industrially useful, the investigation of these compounds has been of value in increasing our understanding of the phenomenon. This paper presents a general survey of the extensive studies that have so far been made.
