This paper describes the preparation and results obtained with a ruthenium-resinate/glass resistive system prepared by firing on to a 96% alumina substrate. The results have been compared with a gold/rhodium-resinate/glass system. It is found in the ruthenium system that the particle size is about 200 Å and because of this, conduction occurs at a very low volume percent conduction phase. Temperature Coefficient of Resistance behaviour of the ruthenium based system is still anomalous.
