An ab initio investigation of how residual resistivity can decrease when an alloy is deformed

Lowitzer, Stephan ; Koedderitzsch, Diemo ; Ebert, Hubert ; Tulip, P.R. ; Marmodoro, A. ; Staunton, J.B.


For a class of transition metal materials residual resistivity is observed to decrease when the materials are deformed and short-range order is removed. We investigate this counter-intuitive behavior with an ab initio theoretical study of the residual resistivity of several late transition metal-rich disordered alloys. The calculations are performed using the Korringa-Kohn-Rostoker (KKR) method ...
