Abstract:The effects of four new impurities (Bi, Pt, Pd, and Ag) on the conduction electron spin resonance signal of sodium metal has been observed. Due to solubility problems, previous attempts to see effects from these impurities have been unsuccessful. By going into the molten state these problems were surmounted. The spin-flip scattering cross section of these impurities was determined. The cross section for bismuth is of particular interest in that it serves as a test of the "resonance hypothesis" theory proposed by Ferrel and Prange. In addition to scattering cross sections, the equilibrium solubilities of bismuth and palladium were determined as a function of temperature. These curves were used to determine the entropy and enthalpy of solution for bismuth and palladium in sodium.
