Abstract:Effects of Rare Earth (Hereafter RE) on the conductance of high-purity and industrial-purity aluminum wires have been studied. RE increases the resistivity of the high-purity aluminum. No evidence has been found that RE will decrease the resistivity of industrial-pure aluminum under various RE content including 0.30/ Ce. The individual role of RE and its combined effects with Fe and Si have been discussed too.
Key words: aluminum wire, conductance, resistivity, rare earth (RE), Ce
