Abstract : Fermi surface changes in dilute alloys of aluminum, of cadmium and of zinc were explored by de Haas-van Alphen methods. In aluminum, nontransition metal solutes of greater and lesser valence produced changes consistent with the rigid band model and no anistropy of electron scattering was observed on the small portions of the Fermi surface studied here. In the isoelectronic alloys Zn Cd and Zn Hg as well as Cd Mg, the influence of axial ratio changes have been determined on Fermi surface parameters and steady susceptibility. Finally, the effect of precipitation on the scattering temperature and on magnetic breakdown was investigated in supersaturated Zn Cd alloys. (Author)
