Abstract

High-accuracy, long-time dc conductivity measurements were performed at fixed temperatures. The conductivity corresponding to a metastable state created by a quick heat treatment was found to be time dependent on the time domain of 10-105 sec. A logarithmic expression describes the time dependence in the entire temperature range investigated (100K
