Title: Tabular electrical conductivity for aluminium

Abstract

A new Sesame-type table for the electrical conductivity of aluminium is dicussed. The table is built upon density functional theory calculations and ranges from 10 –3 to 1 times solid density (2.7 g/cm3), and from 10 –2 to 10 3 eV in temperature. The table is compared with other those of simulations and to experiments and is generally in good agreement. The high-temperature, classical limit of the conductivity is recovered for the highest temperatures and lowest densities. The table is critically evaluated, and directions for improvements are discussed.
