Yes, some years ago a metallurgist offered to make us some wire precisely like that, with 2% or so iron alloyed into aluminum.  That should give about a millisecond electron relaxation time, or certainly long enough for switching purposes without having to go to microwave switching techniques.  We then planned to use the wire in a special circuit where we suddenly potentialized the wire and immediately disconnected, changing the circuit to complete the loop with a load now across the potential difference, and a large capacitance for the "ground",  all prior to relaxation of the electrons.  It is possible to switch the circuit during that "frozen" period into a system that will then freely discharge the nearly-free collected energy in a load.  That should be able to produce a nice little COP>1.0 system.  One could "run" it with nearly electrostatics, yet produce electrodynamic power in the load. 

Unfortunately we never got the wire.  We needed enough for several circuit hookups (say, three or four feet).  And yes, it would have to be made in an inert atmosphere, etc. and is tricky to make because iron and aluminum have quite different melting points as you know, and yes you can easily get an explosion in air etc.

Anyway, if we ever can afford to pay for the wire or get someone to make us some, we will build an appropriate test system to try for overunity.

Somewhere on Tom's site he said that he needed an Aluminum / Iron alloy.  It has been in the back of my mind that it might be possible to create such an
alloy using "powder metallurgy" or sputtering.

Of course the metals would have to be ground, mixed, and sintered in an
inert atmosphere (finely ground aluminum can explode in air).

Sputtering must be done in a near vacuum.

Just a thought Tom *might* not have considered.
