Abstract:

This investigation was initiated to determine the nature and cause of four relaxation peaks which occur in single crystals of lead doped with one of the noble metals, gold, silver, or copper. In the case of each of these dopants, studies employing a composite oscillator have revealed a dominant internal friction peak which had the ideal Debye shape and which yielded an activation energy equal to that given in the literature for the diffusion of the particular noble metal into lead.
