Abstract

The specific heats of α-phase Cu-Au alloys with Au concentrations of 2.4, 4.8, and 10.0 at.% were measured in the temperature range 1-5 K. The electronic coefficient of specific heat showed no significant change, but the Debye temperature was found to decrease with increasing Au concentration. This decrease was consistent with high-Au-concentration results of other investigators and correlated with the predictions from elastic-constant data.
