Homovalent Noble Metal Alloys

  • A. M. Guénault


Measurements on dilute homovalent alloys of noble metals show that the magnitudes of the thermopowers at low temperatures can differ markedly from the alloy contributions extracted from room temperature measurements. We discuss possible reasons for this which include effects of relaxation time anisotropy and many body scattering contributions.
