Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello there,

Id like to estimate how the resistivity due to electron 'collision' with 1st Brillouin zone changes as a function of number of valence electrons in a metal.

Say you start with Na, then add some other material with 2 valence electrons instead of 1, then the fermi wavevector will eventually get so long that it there will be electrons interacting with the Brillouin zone boundary.

How does the resistivity change as a function of number of valence electrons in such a solid?

Thank you for your time.

Kind regards,
Marius

Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

The calculation of the resistivity is a highly non-trivial task. Also, resistivity depends very strongly on temperature (especially in very pure samples and at low temperatures) and on the concentration of impurities.
