Abstract : A study was made of point defects in binary alloys. There are three phases of the research, the first concerned with electron microscopy of gold-palladium foils, the second with electrical resistivity changes produced by quenching in similar composition alloys, and the last concerned with the effect of quenching on mechanical properties of these alloys.
