Changes in the electronic density of states (DOS) caused by plastic deformation and hydrostatic pressure in dilute Al-Mg-Si alloys are examined. Significant changes in the DOS were observed which depended on the mechanical treatment of the alloy. The observations are compared with the DOS of the same alloy in metastable states.
