Alloyed, Deformed, and Irradiated Metals

The consequences of alloying, deforming, quenching, and irradiating metals are considered in this chapter, albeit rather briefly. The result of alloying is to introduce foreign impurity atoms into the metallic lattice, whereas the other treatments introduce lattice defects of various types. In all cases the transport properties are modified to a greater or a lesser degree, depending on the severity of the experimental process, and a study of the lattice perturbations or damage by means of electrical resistivity measurements is often very rewarding. The experimental and theoretical matter embraced by this general subject is quite broad and could easily be expanded into a book itself. We shall be content to summarize the more important effects and to give references where appropriate for further reading.
