gold (Au)

Gold (Au) is a precious metal with atomic number 79 in the periodic table of the elements. It is characterized by corrosion resistance, good electrical conductivity and a high specific resistance of

0.023 Rho.The electrical conductivity of 45 x10exp6 S/m is higher than that of copper. Because of these outstanding properties and good thermal conductivity, gold is mainly used in connector pins, at contacting points, for example in smart cards, in bonding and in connecting wires of chips, in loudspeaker plugs or in Kelvin terminals.
