Abstract: The electrical resistivity measurement to determine a critical temperature (Tc) in a stoichiometric CuAu alloy is discussed on the dependence of the current used. The temperature was measured on two ways: With the thermocouple connected to the specimen by spot-welding, and with them separated. In the latter case, the greater the current, the lower the apparent Tc because of the generation of Joule heat. To obtain a more precise Tc, the current should be as small as possible or the thermocouple should be located as close as possible to the specimen. It is highly desirable for the thermocouple and the specimen to be welded together, if the effects of some contamination can be ignored in measuring system.
