Change of Resistivity of Gold by Cold-working at Liquid-Air Temperature and its Recovery by Temporary Heating

Abstract

SOME time ago Molenaar and Aarts1 observed that the increase of the resistivity of copper, silver and aluminium wires, caused by a plastic deformation at liquid-air temperature, decreased on keeping the wires at room temperature. The recovery of the resistivity was not accompanied by a recovery of the mechanical properties. The stress–strain curve at liquid-air temperature was not changed by this temporary heating.
