Abstract : Several investigators have reported that internal oxidation of dilute alloys is accompanied by significant changes in electrical resistivity. In addition, the resistivity of materials containing dispersions has been shown to increase rapidly upon plastic deformation. This note reports a number of oxidation, deformation, and annealing experiments made on the Af - MgO alloy and to briefly discuss possible causes of the observed effects. (Author)
