KGaA. 2 1 Fundamentals the resistance would approach zero value at very low temperatures, was suggested by the strong decrease with decreasing temperature. Initially, Kamerlingh-Onnes studied platinum and gold samples, since at that time he could obtain these metals already with high purity. He found that during the approach of zero temperature the electric resistance of his samples reached a finite limiting value, the so-called residual resistance, a behavior corresponding to the second possibility discussed above.

2) It could approach a finite limiting value (Heinrich Friedrich Ludwig Matthiesen, 1864). 3) It could pass through a minimum and approach infinity at very low temperatures (William Lord Kelvin, 1902). In particular, the third possibility was favored by the idea that at sufficiently low temperatures the electrons are likely to be bound to their respective atoms. Hence, their free mobility was expected to vanish. The first possibility, according to which 1) Text and figures of this chapter are a short excerpt from monographs [1, 2].

He estimated that at the boiling point of helium he could barely just detect the resistance of the mercury with his equipment, and that at still lower temperatures it should rapidly approach zero value. The initial experiments carried out by Kamerlingh-Onnes together with his coworkers, Gerrit Flim, Gilles Holst, and Gerrit Dorsman, appeared to confirm these concepts. 2 K, the resistance of mercury, indeed, became immeasurably small. During his further experiments, he soon recognized that the observed effect could not be identical to the expected decrease of resistance.
