Abstract:

The electrical resistivity of an alloy having approximately the composition Mn3ZnC has been measured between 4.2 K and 630 K. From a high residual value the resistivity increases with temperature in a complicated way up to 550 K, becoming temperature-independent above that point. Two anomalous regions are evident corresponding to the magnetic transitions occurring in this substance at about 230 K and 470 K. The general features of the results are interpreted on the basis of a spin-disorder scattering picture. Author
