The effect of severe plastic deformation by torsion under Bridgman anvil pressure (SPDT) on the electrical, magnetic, and optical properties of the Cu60Pd40 alloy was studied. It is shown that, after the alloy is disordered, the Curie-Weiss constants of the paramagnetic component are changed insignificantly. In this case, the temperature-independent negative component of the magnetic susceptibility decreases more than fivefold. The electrical resistance and negative thermopower, on the contrary, increase severalfold as a result of SPDT. The character of the optical conductivity is discussed using the band structure calculation results.
