In this work, recommended values for the electrical resistivity as a function of temperature from the cryogenic region to well beyond the melting point are given for bulk pure copper, gold, palladium, and silver. In addition to the total electrical resistivity values for the solid state, intrinsic electrical resistivity values are presented from cryogenic temperatures to the melting point. The values are corrected for the change in geometry due to thermal expansion. The recommendations are…

Electrical Resistivity of Cu–Zr Melts
For the first time, the electrical resistivity of liquid Cu64.5Zr35.5, Cu50Zr50, and Cu33.3Zr66.7 alloys at temperatures up to 1600 K has been measured by the contactless method in a rotating
Decreasing electrical resistivity of gold along the melting boundary up to 5 GPa
ABSTRACT The electrical resistivity of gold was experimentally measured at high pressures from 2 to 5 GPa and temperatures ∼300 K above melting. The resistivity decreased as a function of pressure
Thermophysical properties of solid phase palladium over a wide temperature range
Abstract This paper presents experimental results of a range of thermophysical properties of pure polycrystalline palladium samples over a wide temperature range. Specific heat capacity was measured
High-Temperature Metallic Melts – Resistivity Intercomparison for Space Applications
Liquid state densities and electrical resistivities of pure copper and nickel as well as some of their binary alloys in the vicinity of the constantan mixing ratio (Cu53Ni47 at%) were measured by
