The electrical properties of resistors comprising finely divided CdO and cadmium glass, were investigated. The change in a temperature coefficient of resistance from about −500 ppm/℃ to +70 ppm/℃ was realized by addition of a further component to the resistor paste. Differential thermal analysis, X-ray diffraction analysis and scanning electron microscopy were used for studying crystalline phases in glass containing CdO.
