Abstract

Measurements of the resistivity of dilute alloys of noble metals with transition elements gave rise to the supposition that only transition elements with 5 or 6 electrons in the d-shell would cause anomalies in the electrical resistance at low temperatures. Therefore a number of gold-rhenium and gold-technetium alloys were investigated. Rhenium caused deep minima in the electrical resistivity, along with negative values for the magnetoresistance. From the results on the gold-technetium alloys it could be concluded that the solid solubility of technetium in gold at 1000°C is very small, and therefore no conclusions could be drawn about technetium as a possible cause of anomalies in the resistance.
