Abstract:We compare ab initio calculations of the alloy resistivities for both lattice-matched metal pairs, such as AlAg, AlAu, and AgAu, and lattice-mismatched pairs, such as CuPd, AgPd, AuPd, CuAg, and CuAu, with experimental data. Most of the calculations are nicely consistent with the experimental data. Local impurity-induced distortions are found to be important for lattice-mismatched alloy systems. This result implies that calculations of transport through interfaces (with structures more complex than in alloys) are likely to be sensitive to interfacial structure
