The transverse magnetoresistivity of tungsten single crystals with residual resistivity ratio ρ293K / ρ4.2K of about 75000 was measured in the temperature interval from 2 to 75 K and in magnetic fields of up to 80 kOe. It is found that at low temperatures these “size” crystals display a quadratic temperature dependence of magnetoresistivity ρxx. It is shown that the observed quadratic dependence ρxx(T) appears under static skin effect and is a manifestation of the interference scattering mechanism electron–phonon–surface, similar to what happens in pure metals without a magnetic field. A qualitative explanation of the observed dependence is proposed.
