Abstract:

The electrical resistivity of an alloy having approximately the composition Mn3ZnC has been measured between 4.2 and 630K. From a high residual value the resistivity increases with temperature in a complicated way up to 550K, becoming temperature independent above that point. Two anomalous regions are evident corresponding to the magnetic transitions occurring in this substance at approximately 240K and approximately 450K. The general features of the results are interpreted on the basis of a spin-disorder scattering picture. Author
