Upper limit for magnetoresistance in silicon bronze and phosphor bronze wireThe electrical resistivity of silicon bronze and phosphor bronze was measured in magnetic fields from 0 to 14 T and at temperatures between 2 and 300 K. At any fixed temperature, the change in resistivity to 14 T was less than a few parts in 100,000. Thus, these bronzes are excellent for use in high magnetic fields where constant resistance is required. Welding leads to the sample was found to be superior to soldering. The soldered contacts were subject to spurious resistivity changes that resulted from superconducting transitions in the solder.
