Abstract:

Using exploding wire techniques the resistivity of copper is measured as a function of current density. A linear relationship between log resistivity and log current density is found in the classical plasma region. This region includes electron densities up to 10 to the 21st power per cc. Above this, the material is a quantum liquid or plasma. Author
