Abstract

In this paper we report the results of electrical resistivity $(1.5\leq T \leq 300K)$ and point contact spectroscopy (PCS) measurements on single crystals of metallic sodium tungsten bronze with varying sodium content. We have shown that the electron-phonon coupling function as measured through PCS can explain quantitatively the large temperature dependence of resistivity p seen in these materials over the entire temperature range. The electron-phonon coupling function shows predominately large peaks for phonon frequency range of 30 meV $\leq\hspace{1mm}ui\hspace{1mm}\leq$ 100 meV which match well with the calculated optical phonons for WOs octahedron. The integrated electron-phonon coupling constant A from this data is fa 0.25-0.45, depending on the Na content.
