Abstract

The residual electrical resistivity values for dilute alloys of nonmagnetic transition metals were calculated using the kinetic equation method with account for the two-band conductivity model in the approximation of low impurity concentration. It is shown that for all nonmagnetic dilute binary substitutional alloys of transition metals the reduced residual electrical resistivity is a linear function of the squared nondiagonal element of the scattering T-matrix modulus.
