Anisotropy of the electrical resistance of ferromagnetic metals

  • 28 Accesses


The spin-orbital mechanism of electron scattering in 3-d-ferromagnetic metals is reviewed on the basis of the two-zone model. It is shown that in the case of free s-electrons and strongly bound d-electrons it is the latter which have the predominant role in the anisotropy of the electrical resistance. It is indicated that to produce quantitative agreement with experiment account must be taken of the deviation of the s-electron wave functions from plane waves.
