Computation of Structure and Electrical Resistivity of Liquid Na-Rb Alloys

Keywords: Structure factor, electrical resistivity, pseudo-potential, dielectric screening, liquid metal


The structure and electrical resistivity of Na1-xRbx binary alloys (where x = 0, 0.1, 0.2,…,1) are computed using Percus-Yevick (PY) equation, hard-sphere model and Faber-Ziman formula respectively. The partial structure factors and total structure factor are computed using hard-sphere model for Na1-xRbx. In the calculation of resistivity using Faber-Ziman formula, we have employed Ashcroft empty-core pseudo-potential and Hartree dielectric screening. Calculated values of resistivity are compared with the experimental results and other theoretical values reported in literature. It is found that the electrical resistivity calculated using Faber-Ziman formula for binary alloy Na1-xRbx is in good agreement with the values reported experimentally.
