It has been shown that the observed correlation between the resistivity ρ of high-resistivity metallic alloys and the sign of the temperature derivative of their resistivity can be explained by taking into account the weak localization effect. This correlation is as follows: the derivative dρ/dT is negative for alloys with resistivity in the range of 150–300 μΩ cm, which corresponds to the mean free path of electrons about the interatomic distance; however, this derivative is positive for…

The absolute magnitude of the measured resistivity rise is consistent within ∼25% with the theoretical prediction and is due to electron-electron interaction effects in a three-dimensional disordered metal.
