The reported usage of the palladium-silver alloy films as resistors in the electronics industry has been in encapsulated form. By mounting the resistor inside vacuum electron devices, there is the possibility of eliminating the encapsulation. A literature search has revealed no reported efforts of experiments with unencapsulated resistors and certainly no reports of the palladium-silver alloy resistor in vacuum tubes or other high vacuum environments. Therefore, the research reported in this thesis will concentrate on the environmental effects on resistivity of palladium-silver alloy films in high vacuum.
