Dispersion-strengthened gold

Improved properties at high temperatures
  • J. S. Hill
Open Access


Where higher strength and hardness are required at elevated temperatures dispersion-strengthened gold shows considerable advantages by comparison with conventional alloys. This paper describes the production and testing of gold with a number of oxide dispersions which are effective in enhancing its high temperature properties without appreciably affecting its electrical and thermal characteristics.
