Theoretical Study of Electrical Transport Properties of Bi(1-x)Ga(x) Binary Alloys using Pseudopotential Theory

Aditya M. Vora


In the present work, we report the electrical transport properties of Bi(1-x)Ga(x) binary alloys theoretically by employing our well-known pseudopotential model. The screening influences are studied by using various exchange and correlation functions in the aforesaid study. The present results of electrical resistivity are found to be in qualitative agreement with available experimental data in the literature.
